Gary Player rips conditions at U.S. Open, offers Tiger Woods life advice

Gary Player is a nine-time Major Championship winner, battled against golf’s great in Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, and was even a former participant in ESPN’s Body Issue. Clearly, the man knows a thing or two about playing good golf. So when Player started speaking out this weekend about course conditions at the US Open and Tiger Woods, the fans stopped to hear what the man said. And boy, did he set the interviews on fire.

Rickie Fowler Isn’t Overrated Anymore

Back in 2013, I served as EIC for a North Florida publication, Void Magazine.

I’ve seen a hawk capture a fish only to be then hunted by nasty crows to have the hawk give up on a 15lb pound catfish. I’ve had a squirrel pee on my golf cart seat in anger because I took my snacks (that were for sale) away from him. I’ve also driven past dozens of alligators that frequent the courses in Florida....

When you think of the word “Major”, most people refer to The Masters, U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship. But did you know that there is no governing body in the world of golf that determines what is, or isn’t a Major Championship? In fact, the media and only the media determines which tournaments qualify as a Major in their eyes. When Tiger Woods secured the win in 2013 at THE PLAYERS, it would have brought him that much closer to breaking Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 Major Championships. With all the talk of Woods being...
