Gary Player might be the eighth wonder of this world. The octogenerian continues to be just about the most fit golfer we know, and the guy will turn 85 before this year’s Masters.
The nine-time major champion proved he’s not close to slowing down just yet, posting a video of him doing a flip off a diving board. That’s something this writer, who considers himself somewhat athletic and is in his 30s, wouldn’t dream of doing. Yet again, Player is motivating golfers worldwide by his feats of strength. You need to see this video for yourself.

Our favourite part might be the kids, who could be his grandchildren, going crazy after Player pulls off the dive. We would, too, if our grandpa was diving into swimming pools into his 80s. My Pop-Pop used to go in the ocean once a year on family vacation and it was an absolute rush as a teen. I can’t imagine if he were going full Greg Louganis in his mid-80s.
Mr. Player, you continue to amaze, and motivate us all.
