South Africa’s Zander Lombard will make his debut in the 2019 Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player, and as the first player to qualify for the Rolex Series tournament following his first-place finish on the Sunshine Tour’s Order of Merit last season.

EL CORTÉS: A GLOBAL GOLF DESTINATION

For centuries, the Sea of Cortez has served as a rich canvas for explorers, adventurers, fishermen and artists. Separating Baja California from Mexico’s mainland, the sea (also known as the Gulf of California) runs 700 miles from the tip of Baja California Sur to nearly touching the U.S. border. There are stunning golf destinations aplenty in the region, and the crown jewel of the Baja is a course by Gary Player Design. The only Gary Player signature design in Mexico, El Cortés Golf Club is laid out as an extension of the region’s natural topography and the city’s relaxed attitude. The reopening of El Cortés (formally CostaBaja) has only enhanced the modern Baja golf boom. The Player Design team managed to tame […]

TIGER’S WIN ONE FOR THE AGES

I have to say that Tiger Woods’ victory at The Masters was the greatest comeback in golf I have seen in my lifetime. It compares with Ben Hogan’s. For a player who had gone through back and knee operations, and considerable personal turmoil, it was a remarkable performance. It was an emotional moment for Tiger, and his mother and family, when he put on the Green Jacket for the fifth time and never has a Masters victory been so well deserved. I never thought he would win another Major but now I would not be at all surprised to see him add another Grand Slam event to his collection of 15 Majors. Maybe he won’t equal Jack Nicklaus’s record of […]

PLAYER, NICKLAUS SOUND OFF ABOUT GOLF BALLS, GREEN BOOKS

When two of the most powerful figures in the game have their say, well, the whole world is entitled to listen. And when those figures are Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player – who have nine Green Jackets between them, then the US Masters seems the perfect time for the pair to have their say…and they did. Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus After hitting the traditional opening tee shots at the 2019 Masters, two of the greatest players the game has produced were quizzed about the state of the game. And they were unified in their suggestion that something needed to be done about the golf ball traveling just too far in these modern times, reducing the greatest courses, like Augusta […]

THE VOICE OF GOLF: GARY PLAYER ON PETER KESSLER

Gary Player answers questions from Golf.com Alan Shipnuck on Peter Kessler, also know as, The Voice of Golf.   What made Peter so good at his job? Firstly the voice. His deep, distinct and instantly recognizable voice. To me, he will always be the American “voice of golf.” Then of course his knowledge on the game which spans literally decades of the best players, tournaments and people who make our game so great. What are your favorite memories of being with Peter? The early days at the Golf Channel. Shooting my golf instructional video series was so much fun. More recently, just hanging out in Augusta during The Masters and talking all things golf together with my son Marc and […]
