77-Year-Old Golf Legend Gary Player Will Pose Nude For ESPN The Magazines Body Issue

The issue, one of the magazine's most popular, shows athletes nude in different poses. Player, who won nine major titles and is considered one of the best golfers ever, will be the seventh golfer to appear in the Magazine.
The South African-born Player, who earned the nickname Mr. Fitness in the 1950s, has always been in good shape. He is said to have logged more than 15 million miles during his career, traveling around the world to play in tournaments.
