Gary Player Rips Olympic Golf Withdrawals

Gary Player tends to be opinionated, whether it be fitness-related or the state of the game, golf is Player’s business. With golf’s return to the Olympics this year and Player heading up the South African team, the Black Knight has rarely held his tongue when asked about his thoughts on top players opting out of Rio.

Player said the exodus of some top players from the Games makes him “bitterly disappointed,” and he hopes that the choice to forego playing in Rio doesn’t cost golf a spot in the Olympics going forward.
