At the heart of each Gary Player Invitational is the act of giving back to those less fortunate and to raise funds in order to bring hope, help and healing to underprivileged children and communities worldwide. More than $62 million has been raised through the global series over 30 years, which has made such a huge difference to the lives of those less fortunate.

THE EVENT
Black Knight International and Mazda joined partnership to celebrate the Union of Golf and Giving and hosted the first ever Gary Player Invitational presented by Mazda in Japan on March 19 -22, 2016. The event supported the “Support Our Kids (SOK)” organization which works to aid the children affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake. Golfing icon and Grand Slam winner, Gary Player, hosted the inaugural Gary Player Invitational in Japan in 2016 with an impressive field of well-known personalities from the worlds of sport and entertainment. Celebrities from around the region will join forces with Gary Player again in 2017 to help The Player Foundation reach the goal of raising $100 million.

Thinking back on @b_dechambeau’s #USOpen win and the many subsequent opinions. The thing that stuck with me was Bryson practicing under the lights before his final round. The last man out there. There’s no substitute for hard work, it’s a key ingredient to becoming a champion.

A sneak peek from filming with @NickFaldo006 last weekend. Lots of golf, laughter, and storytelling that we can’t wait to share with you. Here’s a glimpse at our Knight v. Knight bunker challenge – we’ll call it a tie… for now! I cannot wait for you to see what’s still to come.

Taking on the fantastic 19th hole at @BigCedarLodge. Johnny Morris has been so creative in his thinking and what a great way to finish a round. What’s your favorite closing hole?

Nothing I love more than working on my game. You can always get better. As always, Fantastic to pick that G.O.A.T’s brain. No better way to get better. Most importantly, we are still great friends. @jacknicklaus

.@garyplayer might be, pound for pound, the finest golfer in history. And closing in on 85, he’s still tough to beat! He plays 5 days a week, and as you can see, he’s still trying to learn and always trying to get better.
