When I met Gary Player

My name is JUDY Angel, I was born in Durban , South Africa.
I was 17 years old when Mr Player came into my life – After playing golf since the age of 15 I was told I had the potential to become a good player – I met Uncle George Blumberg who was a great friend to all golfers – a wonderful human being. He was a very dear friend of Mr Players and must have said something to Mr Player about me – well one night while having dinner with my family there was a phone call from Mr Player – at first I thought it was a joke – Mr Player spoke to me and invited me to Durban Country Club’s golf range – he was playing in the S A Golf Open – Mr Player spent over an hour with me , helping me with my swing – our next meeting was when I played in the final of the South African Ladies Championship – he and Mrs Player walked with me in the final that I lost. It was THE GREATEST HONOR having him and Mrs Player walk with me.
I turned Professional and left my beloved South Africa to chase my dream – there are no words to describe this wonderful human being .
I since have been battling cancer and there has not been one time that Mr Player hasn’t responded to my request to help with donations to a tournament we hold at my place of work Addison Reserve C C benefiting cancer research . I have idolized him since that day on the range at Durban C C and he has NEVER let me down as a role model.
I can call him Gary but it seems more appropriate for me to give him the respect he deserves by addressing him as Mr Player in this dedication to him.
Many thanks for giving me this opportunity to say THANK YOU TO A FINE GENTLEMAN. CHEERS
