GARY PLAYER CELEBRATED AT #DSIA

Gary Player was last night honoured at the Discovery Sport Industry Awards, where he walked away with the Sportsperson’s Lifetime Community award presented by Deloitte. The award serves to recognise a former sportsperson who has made a sustained positive contribution to community and or development via their actions and endeavours over an extended period of time.

GOLF ICONS PROVE TO BE EVEN BETTER WITH AGE

One of the great traditions that every golf fan should experience is the opening tee shot at the Masters. It wasn’t the same without the late Arnold Palmer this year, but to see Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player try to outdo each other, well, it doesn’t get much better than that. Don’t take my word for it. The pros grow giddy when talking about seeing their heroes from yesteryear. Fred Couples spoke about playing a Masters practice round at Augusta National with Player, chatting with Trevino at the Legends of Golf in April and seeing Don January holding court in the clubhouse at the Insperity. Unless, of course, you could get to watch them play 18 holes instead of hit one tee shot. And why not, for good measure, add Lee Trevino for a nonstop laugh track to the group and sprinkle in names such as Ben Crenshaw, Tony Jacklin, […]
