Let­ters and emails to hit the GM of­fices this month

Call him phe­nom­e­nal, su­perb, sub­lime or any word that comes to mind and you will be de­scrib­ing the great­est golfer in the world.

Gary Player formed a mar­vel­lous trio with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nick­laus, and be­tween them they brought magic to the game. How­ever, Player stands alone. Aged 80, he still plays and com­petes all over the world and al­ways finds time to re­turn home to South Africa.

In the 2016 Masters he recorded his 31st hole-in-one dur­ing the Par 3 Con­test and crashed his cer­e­mo­nial open­ing drive 20 yards fur­ther than his great friend Nick­laus.

He does 1,300 sit-ups be­fore lunch on a daily ba­sis and can still kick shoul­der-high with each leg! Hope­fully we in the United King­dom will find a way to hon­our his pres­ence. Peter Hughes, Burn­ham
