Gary Player to pose nude

If you don't want to see Gary Player pose nude, please look away on July 12.

At 77 years young, the South African golfing legend with nine major titles to his name, will appear in all his glory in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue where athletes pose naked for the magazine.

Player tweeted: 'After a lifetime dedicated to health and fitness I'm chuffed to be in ESPN magazine's Body Issue to hopefully inspire others to workout and live well.'

He will join San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Olympic volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, NBA players John Wall and Kenneth Faried, and baseball players Matt Harvey and Giancarlo Stanton in the fifth-annual Body Issue.

Player will become the oldest athlete to appear in the special issue and join fellow others in doing so in the past, such Sandra Gal, Christina Kim, Suzannn Pettersen and Camilo Villegas. 

When Golfmagic caught up with The Black Knight at Golf Live last season, he explained to us how he does 1,000 sit-ups per day!
