When I met Gary Player

I was 10 years old and watching Mr. Player play at the old Colonial CC in Memphis. I was walking along the Gallery ropes and he was having a conversation with me and neither of us saw the crossing hazard and I just walked right into it. He was most definitely concerned and made sure I was ok. Later in the round, Mr. Player hit his tee shot into the bunker behind the green. I remember that it was buried and if you know the hole, he we facing a difficult shot as the lake was on the other side. I never will forget he blasted out of the bunker and made it for a 2! I also had fun playing with his son Wayne in the Future masters. Lastly, Mr. Player will be glad to know that my son Smylie just won his first PGA event. We look forward to meeting you in April!! God Bless and Happy 80th to you sir!

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.

I love music and I love to dance! Have a lovely weekend, everyone.

Golf is truly a sport for life. Thankful to be 84 and still swinging. 🏌️‍♂️
