Yeah, you read that right. The one and only Gary Player has agreed to bare all in the fifth edition of ESPN The Magazine’s ‘Body Issue’. Player will be the oldest athlete ever to be featured in the magazine.
I suppose this should come as only a slight surprise. Mr. Player has long been a champion for health and fitness, and the 77-year old has the body of a 35 year old. His energy and fitness still astounds me to this day. In fact, he still practices a vigorous fitness regimen that includes 1,000 sit-ups per day. The man is a machine.
If you’re concerned about seeing things that you don’t want to see (you know what I mean), don’t sweat it. Gary’s manhood will be hidden from view by creatively placed Titleists… or in Gary’s case, Callaways.
The ‘Body Issue’ will feature 21 athletes, and will hit news stands on July 12.
