Take a walk with me down Fascination street as I get to know Gary Player. A golf LEGEND; Gary has won over 160 tournaments on six continents, over 7 decades; including: 9 Majors on the regular tour, 9 Majors on the Champions tour, 3 Masters, 3 PGA Opens, 2 PGA Championships, and 1 US Open. Gary was the FIRST non American, and youngest at the time, to win all 4 majors (at 29).
In this episode we chat about the remarkable win by Phil Mickelson as the oldest player ever to win the PGA Championship and what a landmark achievement this is and why. We talk about the health and fitness of the world, focusing mainly on The United States, and how what we eat determines how long we can expect to live. We talk a little bit about what it was like to grow up in South Africa, and why he chose to play golf. Gary shares his thoughts on the US education system, and the state of hatred based on political ideology in America, and the importance of love and acceptance if we are to thrive as a nation and as human beings. Gary shares how special it was to be awarded The Medal Of Freedom. We touch a bit on his new podcast The Player Series in which he speaks with a host of guests including world renowned golfers about golf, and the people, equipment, and news surrounding the sport. Finally, Gary and I tell each other a joke to lighten things up!
