GARY PLAYER VISITS DEPAUL’S NEW HOMELESSNESS CENTRE IN LONDON

Gary Player, 18-time Major winner and the only international player to win the career Grand Slam, and David Mortlock, Head of Investment Banking at Berenberg, visited Depaul’s new youth homelessness centre to witness first-hand how the charity has utilised the funds raised by the annual Berenberg Gary Player Invitational pro-am charity golf event. Over the past three years, the GPI event, which brings together global golf stars and legends of the game in a union of ‘Golf and Giving’, has raised more than $500,000 (£385,000) for various beneficiaries, including DePaul, helping to fund their move to a new national headquarters, The Endeavour Centre at Sherborne House, in central London.

GARY PLAYER DESIGN OVERSEES REDESIGN WORK AT KIAWAH ISLAND GOLF RESORT

Awkward handshakes and momentous high-fives – a day spent with Gary Player

This wasn’t quite how I had anticipated meeting Gary Player. The lift doors opened, he was carrying what looked like a bag of washing while I was wrestling with a golf bag, laptop and holdall which meant just getting into the lift and remaining upright was hard enough on its own. I then strangely attempted to pull off a handshake which meant our fingers barely made contact. It was 7am in a hotel in Southport, a mixture of anxiety and over-excitement meant I had been awake for nearly three hours and we were on our way to breakfast. Whilst I struggle to even open my mouth into something resembling a conversation before noon Player, despite the time, doesn’t miss a beat. Over breakfast, we’re sat at different ends of the room but he still engages us whenever he comes to help himself from the buffet, we learn that he always […]
