Gary Player, the Black Knight from South Africa exemplifies attitude equals altitude, ever positive and energized. Player grew up on a farm in South Africa where his father worked in the gold mines and his mother passed at an early age. Player was introduced to the game at 14 years old through his caddy job to earn money. He vowed the day he received his first set of clubs he would someday be the best golfer in the world. Player went on to win over 160 events worldwide, 9 Major championships and is known as the world traveler and top 3 golfers of all time! His first place winner’s check of $15,000 in 1958 was what he called the rocket fuel that propelled him to go on to such a wonderful career. It made him feel like he belonged on the PGA Tour, he knew at that moment he would indeed become the greatest!
