Did he say this today? Otherwise, old news. 
 

A year ago he claimed 3072. The year before that ……. 2400, haha. He’s lost track of reality. 
 

He’s a serial bragger, boorish and it’s a little bit sad but seems just a more and louder version of his real self.  He just had to have the most starts record at Augusta, haha, not viewed as cool in intent at the time by some of his peers, but the guy is driven by competition. 
 

British Open cheating thing is BS but people love to repeat that one (and once in awhile it’s “I know someone who saw it” - why not, it’s the internet and anything goes).

 

He was fun to watch in his prime and a great golfer and really did come from a tough childhood. 
 

His rant against Augusta National last year was the last I needed to hear from him.

He's in damn good shape for 88, his mind might be going though.

Oddly enough, he hasn't really changed in 60 years. Can't blame age.

I have no reason to doubt any particular statement Player makes, any more than I have reason to doubt people here when they say what their handicap is or that they carry 320 yards or even that they are decent ball strikers, even though my experience sometimes makes me wonder.  I can see him playing 4 or 5 rounds of golf a week, for 20 years that’s around 4000 to 5000 rounds.  Seems unlikely, but not impossible a very large percentage of them were his age.  I’m sort of old myself and can say from personal observation there is a world of difference in how people age.  When people on this forum talk about their speed dropping at 50 or even 40 I want to say to them, “Stop eating and drinking so much, and get some exercise.”  But that would be rude.

 

On the other hand any idea that any sports great has anything resembling a normal ego is hard to accept.  Grandiose narcissism is probably as common as dirt among them, may even be necessary.

Totally agree that a component of that grandiosity if often part of what makes some of the greats great at what they do, but think about the other part for a sec...

Why wouldn't you doubt the guy more that has an exhaustive history of bragging and exaggerating? Surely every 2 handicap on the internet doesn't share Gary's grandiosity right? That's like having two suspects in an arson case, one did 10 years on Rikers Island for burning down a 7/11, and the other guy just owns a lighter. 😅

Gary and hyperbole go hand in hand! 

 

Best story I have about him was at The Open 2022. Stood on the practice ground as Player came on to hit a few balls. The autograph hunters were looking for him on either side. He bobbed from side to side and proclaimed that he was going to go the side with the "hottest chicks" and it fairness to him, he did go to sign on the side with the hottest chicks 😂

Pretty sure I read somewhere that he’s got holes at home in South Africa plus he had a place on a golf course in the States 

 

Given his physical shape, I wouldn’t be surprised if he played virtually every day 

 

He does (and always has had) a massive ego plus a chip on his shoulder so I would take it with a chunk of salt 

 

Didn’t he also claim that he was the most successful golfer ever because of his major win on the Seniors Tour?

No human being in history has so often ventured squarely into North Korean propaganda territory as Gary Player.
