KUSA - World Golf Hall of Famer Gary Player is one of the greatest golfers who ever picked up a club.

During his 60-year career, he won nine major championships including the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, and PGA Championship.

At age 29, he became the only non-American to win a Grand Slam.

"Mr. Fitness" is also, at the age of 78, still one of the healthiest men alive, doing 1,000 sit ups every morning and keeping himself in immaculate shape, even gracing the cover of ESPN the Magazine's "The Body Issue" in 2013.

Player is spreading the word on health and fitness as part of the upcoming PGA TOUR event in January, the Humana Challenge, a tournament aiming to be 'the Healthiest Event in America'.
