When I met Gary Player

I was hired by Tom Herron to host the Gary Player Golf Vacations videos. As a result, I got to spend a lot of time with Gary, mostly at championship golf events.
My greatest memory of those days was when, at dinner one night, I learned that Gary was as knowledgeable about what was happening around the world and he added the great story of how, with Mandella’s help, he established a golf course on his property in South Africa and included a method so that all animals could travel from the jungle from one side of the course to the other side. It was a ditch need deep and wide enough to hide the tallest of all animals with a cover over the top. In addition to satisfying animal needs but also taking care of the safety of human golfers. At the end of the story I was so fascinated with the whole concept that Gary invited me to come to South Africa, stay at his home and play the course.




Check out those pants! Just for fun, can you name what event and year this is from?

One of my duties is to help grow the game, so it’s always a good day when I get to meet young golfers and try to cultivate a passion for the game. I had a great time with @FirstTeePhilly - a youth development organization introducing golf and its inherent values to young people.

Sweet memories with Vivienne and our eldest daughter, Jennifer. Success would not be the same if you are unable to enjoy it with your family.
