Gary Player to pose nude in ESPN 'Body Issue' at age 77
At 77 years young, Gary Player will appear in all his glory in ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue," where athletes pose naked for the magazine.
Player will join San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Olympic volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, NBA players John Wall and Kenneth Faried, and baseball players Matt Harvey and Giancarlo Stanton in the fifth-annual "Body Issue." Player will be the oldest athlete to appear in the special issue. Golfers Sandra Gal, Christina Kim, Anna Grzebian, Belen Mozo, Suzann Petterssen and Camilo Villegas have all posed naked for ESPN The Magazine in the past.
Player's exercise regimen in his retirement is well-documented -- he does 1,000 sit-ups per day -- and the nine-time major champ often shares inspirational advice on Twitter.
