Gary Player followed #SB2K16 on Snapchat and Instagram just like so many other golf fans, and he wants in.
On Tuesday, Player tweeted a photo of him and Jack Nicklaus from what he described as their own Spring Break from 1965, or in modern parlance, #SB1965.
As you probably know, Player is referring to the Bahamas vacation of Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Smylie Kaufman and Justin Thomas. The fellas broadcast their adventures on Baker's Bay Golf Club, including a lot of golf while shirtless and in board shorts, as well plenty of booze and hilarious mock commentary.
And while Mr. Player isn't much of a drinker, he throws a mean barbecue party, and he's welcome on my annual golf trip any time.
The word apparently got back to Smylie Kaufman, who may head the #SB2K17 planning committee, who told Player and Nicklaus that they're welcome to join in the fun.
