What is Gary Player's net worth? With a net worth of $200 million, professional golfer Gary Player has done alright for himself on the PGA Tour. In addition to his net worth, Player is one of the most revered and respected of all PGA golfers, with millions of fans all over the world. As the third most winning golfer in the history of the PGA, Player has earned these fans due to his almost unparalleled skill at the game, in addition to his easygoing and charming manner away from the links. Player has not been totally free from controversy, however. In 1966 he was quoted as saying "I am a South African, a nation which is the result of an African graft on European stock and which is the product of its instinct and ability to maintain civilized values and standards amongst the aliens," a statement with clear denotations of racial prejudice. Player has since profusely apologized for the quote, even going so far as to claim that it wasn't made by him but instead the writer of the book. Now, however, Player's views on apartheid are very different, pledging $100 million over the course of his career to the underprivileged in South Africa, as well as inviting black golfer Lee Elder to play in South Africa, infuriating the then-apartheid government.
Gary Player DMS; OIG (born 1 November 1935) is a South African professional golfer and widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of golf. Over his career, Player accumulated an impressive nine major championship and six Champions Tour major championship victories. At the age 29, Player won the 1965 U.S. Open and became the only non-American to win all four majors, known as the career Grand Slam. Player became only the third golfer in history to win the Grand Slam, following Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen. Since then, only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have won the Grand Slam. Player has won 165 tournaments on six continents over six decades and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.
Player was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. He has logged more than 25 million kilometers (15 million miles) in travel, which is more than any other athlete. Nicknamed the Black Knight, Mr. Fitness, and the International Ambassador of Golf, Player is also a renowned golf course architect with more than 325 design projects on 5 continents throughout the world. He has also written several golf books.
His business interests are represented by Black Knight International, which includes Gary Player Design, Player Real Estate, and Black Knight Enterprises, aspects of which include licensing, events, publishing, wine, apparel and memorabilia.
The Gary Player Stud Farm has received worldwide acclaim for breeding top thoroughbred race horses, including 1994 Epsom Derby entry Broadway Flyer. He operates The Player Foundation, which has a primary objective of promoting underprivileged education around the world.
In 1983, The Player Foundation established the Blair Atholl Schools in Johannesburg, South Africa, which has educational facilities for more than 500 students from kindergarten through eighth grade. In 2008 it celebrated its 25th Anniversary with charity golf events in London, Palm Beach, Shanghai and Cape Town, bringing its total of funds rais
