Product Description

Dr. Ian Player can justly be called the founding father of canoeing in South Africa. His expedition in 1950 reconnoitring the daunting path from Pietermaritzburg to Durban down the Umsindusi and Umgeni rivers started the Dusi Canoe Marathon.

He couldn’t have dreamed, though his vision was great, how the race would expand as it has. Through his pioneering adventure, canoeing has burgeoned into the spectacular and popular sport that captures South Africa’s imagination today.

MEN, RIVERS & CANOES is more than just about the Dusi and canoeing. Ian Player’s vivid story-telling takes us deep into the human spirit, into wild nature and South Africa’s rich history. Sections of this book recount the first expeditions down the untamed Umkomaas and Pongola rivers. Here is the story of wilderness trails of a different kind, into the maelstroms and calms of the river wilds of South Africa…

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.

Less than 50 days until @TheMasters. I'm excited to see how the course looks and plays in November. It will be an honor to be part of this year’s event and when considering the field, there are several exciting players who could win. It’s going to be another great tournament.
