Gary Player to pose nude in ESPN The Magazine Body issue


Odds are, Gary Player is in better shape than you. And Player will flaunt what his mama and millions of pushups have given him.

The 77-year-old Player will pose in the nude for ESPN The Magazine's annual "Body" issue.

The South African will be joined by the likes of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and tight end Vernon Davis, beach volleyball icon Kerri Walsh-Jennings (during and post-pregnancy), as well as Washington Wizards guard John Wall. Tennis players Agnieszka Radwanska and John Isner will also appear in the issue.

Player will be the oldest athlete to pose for the issue, which is now in its fifth year.

He follows in the footsteps of LPGA players Suzann Pettersen, Belen Mozo, Christina Kim, Sandra Gal and Anna Grzebien, and PGA Tour player Camilo Villegas as golfers to pose in the issue.

The issue will be available for sale July 12.
