Gary Player Still Has One Sweet Swing

Gary Player, the South African golf legend, is now 80 years old. But the Black Knight isn’t letting age slow him down.

In this GIF-like Instagram video, Player shows off his timeless swing on the par 3 2nd hole at Mountain Park, which is naturally a Gary Player designed gem, located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Hill Mountains.

Those who follow Player on social media probably aren’t too surprised by the sweet swing. The 4-time major champion is a fitness and diet fanatic, even as he closes in on 81.

As Player says so (awesomely) on his Instagram home page, “I’m old, get over it.”
