Gary Player, golf (1953-)

Born: Nov. 1, 1935

One of the greatest players in the history of golf, Player has nine majors to his credit, including three Masters and three British Opens. The longevity and greatness of the South African can be seen by the fact he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974 but continues to participate in tournaments.
