THE PLAYER FOUNDATION

Letter from Gary
“Growing up as a boy in South Africa was not easy for our family. My mother died when I was just 8 years old. My father was busy working in the gold mines, while my brother was off fighting in World War II, and my sister was at boarding school. We did not have a lot of money.

With the travel my profession and wins have afforded my wife Vivienne and I, we have seen the poverty and enormous needs around the world. We have gained great satisfaction from giving something back to the world in moments of success.

I have found that the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others does not thrust itself upon us, but we do not need to look hard for it, either. When you spot the chance to give back to the world, act on it. You will have made life better. For others and for yourself.”

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jabu Mabuza. He was a man that I admired deeply and was a person who contributed a great deal to South Africa. I will miss him terribly and my love goes out to his family at this difficult time.

Seeing @garrick_higgo win his first PGA Tour event in only his second start has been one of the most enjoyable things for me to witness in my career. He is without a doubt the most humble, well mannered young man that you could wish to meet. Watch this space, big things to come!

As we await the #USOpen, I was reminded of when @b_dechambeau was practicing at night well after his round. His win is what’s remembered, but we should also remember that night before. I have much respect for that kind of hunger and I can’t wait to see who's victorious next week.

Jack, Arnie, Phil Rogers and myself at the 1963 @TheOpen Championship. Apparently the more time we spent together, the more we started to dress alike! Bob Charles defeated Phil in the playoff that year, with Jack finishing third. #TBT
