Grand Slam winner, 18-time Major champion golfer and the World's Most Traveled Athlete®, Gary Player is one of the most successful golfers in the history of the sport. Player has won 165 tournaments on six continents over six decades and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. Along with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus he became known as one of "The Big Three" golfers of his era – from the late 1950s through to the late 1970s. He turned professional at 17, after being encouraged to play golf by his father, who told him he might one day own a Rolex. Today, his Rolex is a reminder of the adversity he faced, how far he has come and of his father.
