Gary Player is a nine-time Major Championship winner, battled against golf’s great in Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, and was even a former participant in ESPN’s Body Issue. Clearly, the man knows a thing or two about playing good golf.
So when Player started speaking out this weekend about course conditions at the US Open and Tiger Woods, the fans stopped to hear what the man said.
And boy, did he set the interviews on fire.
Player first appeared on the The Golf Channel where he called the conditions at the US Open “a tragedy.” But it was his appearance on ESPN’s morning Sportscenter where he went a step further by saying, “this is the worst I’ve ever seen.”

Woods missed the cut for the 2nd time in 19 starts and Player went on to give some of the best insight on Tiger’s lagging career with some solid fatherly advice.
Kinda feels like a grandpa giving you a talkin-to out back causing you to reevaluate your entire philosophy on life.

We also had a special guest in studio filming the many antics you don’t normally get to see because, well, it’s radio.
With that said, here’s a clip done by the wonderful Marcel documenting our heated conversation on the outfit choice by Rickie Fowler’s girlfriend after his win at THE PLAYERS Championship.
Back in 2013, I served as EIC for a North Florida publication, Void Magazine. In our annual Golf Issue, I had the pleasure of pinpointing golfers I thought could make a splash at THE PLAYERS Championship. I was a little early in my prediction as Rickie Fowler was my favorite to win it. But two years later, Fowler secured the victory at golf’s 5th Major in one of the most captivating back nine comebacks the PGA has ever seen.
Check our interview with Fowler before he became all big time after the jump.
Early in the wee hours when the sun is just peering over the horizon, the shadow of an industrial-sized lawn mower can be seen rolling over the greens while sprinklers are watering the bright pink azaleas with the faint smell of jasmine in the air. Nearby, servers are setting up tables and golf carts are getting the 5-star detail treatment in preparation for the day’s festivities.
It’s this calm before the storm where only those who arrive early enough, can take in the true beauty that is TPC Sawgrass before thousands upon thousands of spectators show up to cheer on their favorite golfer in what many consider the 5th Major, THE PLAYERS.
