I've always like Gary Player because he exudes class. That was further confirmed by a great story my instructor, Bill, told me about him. Years ago, Bill was on tour and in an event Gary Player. Gary and his wife end up at lunch with Bill and his wife, having never met before. They had a nice lunch and Gary's wife took Bill's wife shopping that afternoon.
The next day, Bill is on the putting green and Gary sees him. Gary walked over, shakes Bill's hand and says, "Bill, I just wanted to tell you how nice of an afternoon I had at lunch with you and my wife really enjoyed the afternoon of shopping with yours. Best of luck to you in the tournament." All class.
