Gary Player Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Gary Player Net Worth $200 Million

Gary Player was born on November 1, 1935, in Johannesburg, South Africa, but nowadays he lives in Florida, United States. The childhood of Gary was not so easy – his mother died of cancer when Player was only 8 years old, and his father worked hard to ensure a successful family business, as Gary had three brothers and sisters. But still his father managed to introduce his son to the golf game. When Gary was only 14 years old, he was already playing very well, and two years later announced that he was going to be the best player in the world. Of course, no one could believe this phrase said by a 16 years old kid, but now, when we see how rich Gary Player is, we can definitely say these were not just words. One year later he became a professional golfer, and then of course Player’s net worth started to rise.

Today Gary has many fans all over the world, but he is still the known in South Africa and also the United States. During his career as a professional golf player Gary’s net worth was increased rapidly. He played in many world championship events and even won 9 of them, so there is no wonder that the net worth established by such a great and rich athlete as G. Player is bigger than many others salary during their lifetime. One more reason why Gary’s net worth increased and Gary himself became more popular, was the fact that he became the first person not from United States who managed to make such a great career in golf. In particular He is also only the third person in the world to win the four Grand Slam tournaments.

If we try to sum up all Player’s career since the beginning, when he played as a 17 year old boy, we have to state that he has participated in 165 different tournaments all over the world – while playing golf Gary visited all six world continents, and in 1973 he was even immortalised by being inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Of course, after such a great career the net worth earned by Player was built up extremely high, and furthermore, he is fairly one of the greatest golf players in history.

Not such a long time ago people knew nothing about G. Player, but today Gary and his net worth are known around the world so well that he is much more popular than many stars in show business.
