Gary Player is reportedly going to appear nude in the ESPN Magazine ‘Body Issue’ due to hit the shelves on July 12 in the US.
The annual issue often features a golfer or two (Camilo Villegas for example) that features a whole range of athletes from different sports but not surprisingly this is the first time a 77-year-old golfer is set to pose naked.
Player remarked on the news via his Twitter account:
I was at first hesitant, but @ESPNmag‘s Body Issue celebrates the human body. No matter what your age, we should all look after ourselves!

I know I’m no Olympic athlete but have worked hard to look after myself. Hopefully @ESPNMag Body Issue will inspire others to do the same.

The nine-time major champion from South Africa was always ahead of his time when it came to fitness and Player is still as fit as a fiddle.
So why not I suppose?!
