A tireless bundle of energy from South Africa, Gary Player was the first truly global pro, winning 163 tournaments around the world, including nine majors and 24 PGA Tour events. Although he stood only 5’6″ and 160 pounds, Player made up for his shortcomings with an indomitable will to win and an exercise routine that was years ahead of its time, including one-arm push-ups and hundreds of sit-ups a day.
