77-Year-Old Golf Legend Poses With Nothing But His Club

Golf club, that is…

Over the course of his long and incredibly successful career, Gary Player won 24 events on the PGA tour, including nine majors. The 77-year-old South African is a man of many nicknames, including The Ambassador of Golf, The Black Knight, and, most importantly, Mr. Fitness. According to a WSJ article in 2011, the 5-foot-7-inch legend was still doing 1,000 push ups and sit ups every morning — meaning he’s in better shape than people a quarter his age.

Mr. Fitness’s naked body will be gracing the pages of ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue, and rightfully so. The naked 77-year-old more than holds his own in the same pages as twentysomething physical specimens like the 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick and the Mets’ Matt Harvey.
