"Parent calls out child on social media" is the most 2022 thing ever

Thank you. As if his son isn’t a mirror reflection of his dad.

I don’t know that much about the personal life of Gary Player, just his records and golf tips on fitness etc. But this family and Marc. It’s a friggin reality show. Who takes his fathers trophies and memorabilia and takes a shot on eBay. Really, who does that? What the heck is the back story and context on this mess.

From Marc's lawyer:

 

“All other trophies or memorabilia were validly gifted to Marc Player by his parents, remain his, and Marc has been in full possession of these items for decades without any claim by his father, Gary’s management, the family, or Gary’s advisors,” the statement said. “You cannot take back what no longer belongs to you.”

 

I wonder what Gary charges people for playing a round of golf with him? If he needs the money.

It involves Gary Player, one of the most prolific winners in the history of golf and the trophies he collected winning those golf tournaments. Golfwrx is a website devoted to covering golf, and this discussion board is where registered members discuss all things golf. If it is confusing why this is a topic here, I’m not sure how to help you…..

 

I'm quite aware of who Gary Player is, my point is we have a thread dedicated to personal issues involving his son and frankly that stuff isn't our business. If you are good with this Twitter-fueled gossip train then be my guest, I personally despise the trash bin that social media has become and how much attention people pay to it.

You mean you don't want to see pictures of my cats?

I wonder how much PXG paid him to make that cringe worthy video of him using a driver as an air guitar?

Yeah man, I get it. Twitter is trash, social media is a terrible alternate reality, agree 100%. But a story about Gary Player’s golf memorabilia being stolen and sold by his son is definitely a legit talking point on this discussion board.

Only if your cat is lining up a par putt to win the Masters.

Bad deal for the Player family, I hope they sort it out, still none of my business either way 🙂

Once the family tries to sell something on a public platform and then discusses it on social media it is certainly fair game.  I could care less but their privacy wasn’t violated or anything…

Agreed and I never said it was, I said social media turns peoples private lives into very public things that really aren’t anyone else’s business. Nothing more than that, man.

Craig Stadler did a hilarious impersonation of Gary on PGAT Radio today.  Also mentioned that Gary sold his Master's jacket a couple years ago.

I thought you couldn't take them off grounds after the first year or something?
