A POEM BY GARY PLAYER

17 turned Pro

Hoping to make a little dough

My father almost died of fright

But ended up in sheer delight

For a boy who traveled to school by tram

Ended up winning the Grand Slam

From a tram to a jet

The world famous people I have met

Known this girl for 66 years of my life

She has turned out to be my champion wife

Children and grandchildren of which I am so proud

It’s like flying with a perfect dream on a cloud

Now at 80 having changed the lives of hundreds of thousands through money

Folks this is for me, peaches and honey

To all my friends in this room

You have swept a clear road to success for me with your broom

Thanks

The entire golf community needs to continue promoting the women's game. I'm proud to have hosted female players at my events for years, but this shouldn't be special, this should be the norm. Well done, Kate and @JustinRose99. Let's keep growing the game. https://t.co/9Ya4usnNNN

Great memories from the 1962 #PGAChamp. Sending my best wishes to the talented field competing for this year's title. My picks: @JonRahmPGA or @XSchauffele. Who do you think will be crowned champion?
