  Travel Golf: Gary Player is so much more than golf
Fortunately, when Player recently stopped in Austin to check on the progress of his signature and future home course, Marshall Ranch, and visit with the local media, I had the opportunity to spend a day with the "Black Knight," so named for his penchant to wear fl attire on the course.
He spoke of the Gary Player Foundation, which he created in 1983 to provide education for underprivileged children in poor rural communities in South Africa.
Player said at the Blair Atholl Farm, just north of Johannesburg, the Foundation has undertaken three projects including the building of a primary school for 400 children, upgrading a pre-school for 75 toddlers, and the creation of a new community resource center.

  Gary Player - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gary Player (born November 1, 1935 in Johannesburg) is a South African professional golfer generally regarded as one of the greatest players in the game's history.
Player is one of the most successful golfers in the history of the sport, ranking first in total professional wins, with at least a hundred and sixty-six, and tied fourth in major championship victories with nine.
Being South African, Player never played in the Ryder Cup in which American and European golfers compete against each other, and he was no longer an eligible player when the Presidents Cup was established to give international players the opportunity to compete in a similar event.

Player captured the US Open at the Bellerive Country Club to complete a Grand Slam of major victories, only the third person in history to achieve the feat, and today he remains one of only five players to have won the big four, the others being Jack Nicklaus, Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods.
Player faced Nicklaus for the second time in a World Matchplay final in 1971, and once again he crushed the Golden Bear, winning his fourth matchplay crown with a five and four victory in the final.
Gary Player claims to be the most-travelled athlete in history, and it is hard to argue with his aggregate of over 12-million air miles!

Player verges on certifiable in his absolute insistence on a non-stop lifestyle that would floor most teenagers — zooming around the world to play golf, design courses, appear at sponsor functions, and in the case of the Nelson Mandela Invitational, raise substantial sums of money for charity.
And so instead of playing bowls and pottering about in his garden, Player is living his life in cheerful defiance of his age — which is just one more reason why the country's greatest ever golfer serves as an inspiration on multiple levels.
Player is a terminal workaholic, traversing the planet to develop new courses from Poland and Bulgaria, to Honduras and the Philippines, over and above his range of South African projects.
