Gary Player in His Words: Pinehurst’s Grand History

On his recent visit to Pinehurst, the great Gary Player took a few moments to tell us about his history with Pinehurst, what moves him most when he comes to the Cradle of American Golf (hint, it’s not the golf; it’s the people), and the true passions in his life.

Of course, we did talk some golf, including Mr. Player’s memories of Payne Stewart’s triumph at the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst, and got to watch him do what he does best – recover from a bunker.
