player spring break

Gary Player was as competitive a golfer as there ever was on this planet.  No player ever got so much from such a small package.  He won nine major championship and hundreds of golf tournaments on a dozen different tours.

We have seen them goofing on each other while playing golf in their bathing suits, popping a few cold ones and generally just having a damn good time. Hey, this… Continue Reading

But Scott, always honest and forthright says competing in the Olympics is just too much during an already jammed summer schedule. He’d rather concentrate on winning another major championship to further his golfing legacy. “My decision has been… Continue Reading
