Photos have surfaced of Gary Player, 77, posing nude in ESPN’s ‘Body Issue.’

The nine-time major champion started in the gym in his back prime and has continued. He told ESPN that he has worked out regularly for 63 years.

He does 1,200 sit-ups, all different kind of core exercises and stretches daily. He is also 70 percent vegetarian.

He told ESPN, “I visited a chiropractor recently, and he said, ‘You shouldn't be able to walk. You've hit millions of balls, and your spine shouldn't be holding up to it, but your core is so strong that you manage to keep going.’”
