Horse´s ass. Dude earned it, let dude play. Do not go gentle, ever, into that good night. You´ll agree when they put your diminishing writing skills out to pasture.

Great. This from a guy (RomMon) who writes like a bad gossip columnist.

Mr. Player is in better shape mentally and physically at 71 than you'll probably ever be so try to find something better to do with your time than whine about a living legend setting a record. We are all entitled to our opinions but some of us are smart enough not to write out our dumb opinions for the world to read.

What the hell kind of name is Kleigh?

You some kind of German?

Gary Player may be in better shape mentally than me, but I have little doubt I could kick his ass if it came down to it.

Gary Player is a cheat!

Player has been dogged by accusations of cheating through a great deal of his career.

He was accused of dropping a ball in the rough on the 71st hole of the British Open in 1974. Player denies the charge, and somewhat oddly, blames the accusations on the fact he had a black caddie at the time.

Tom Watson also accused him of cheating in the first Skins Game. Player also has a weird excuse for that one, saying that Watson waited too late to make his accusation known.

Incidentally, Player said he would never play at Augusta past the age of 70.

So, to recap: Is Player a cheat and a liar?

Or are these accusations false, and his promise of not playing at Augusta after age 70 simply forgotten?

Rick, you're one of these sycophants who so worships celebrities so much you're blind to any faults they may have. Because without them, you're nothing.

What kind of history and tradition are you talking about?

Dropping a golf ball in the rough to gain an advantage? Yeah, that's a tradition I'd be proud of.

Wait until next year. Perhaps Gary Player will follow Arnild Palmer's example and stop at 50.

My complaint is against the baseball player who dedicated himself to taking the name Lou Gehrig out of the record book for the longest playing streak(2130 games).

Not a chance. Player is a player, and he
wants to stick it to Arnie with Masters
#51. He's also pulling for Freddie to
blow up on Friday to keep his consecutive
cut streak to himself.

There have been times when I have thought the "old timers" should stop showing up at Augusta, but that does not apply to the "Legends" of which Gary Player is certainly one. With the lack of good scoring at Augusta this year (few birdies and almost no eagles) the course was somewhat quite, few famous "Augusta Roars". But on both Thursday and Friday, Gary Player gave the patrons something to cheer about, he was exciting to watch and the ovations he receives as he plays the course speak for themselves .. he belongs.

With Player it is all about EGO...EGO...EGO! He has always been a self promoting chauvinist. He is in the same league as Jack Nicklaus...promoting golf only for the rich. It is rocking chair time for the "legend." Goodbye and good riddance.

You must feel like an idiot now that you've seen the wonderful press he received and how much the fans enjoyed him. Not to mention, his 77 that he posted under those conditions during round 2 wasn't too shabby. So he didn't make the cut, but he certainly didn't embarass himself... people go to the masters to see legends like him play, and as a 3-time winner, he deserves it in my opinion. As fit as he is man, let him keep going to show young people what they can accomplish.

G. Smith: I never let what others write or say affect what I think or feel.

Apparently you do, and are a weak person.

My beliefs are strong, like my moral imperative, and cannot be swayed by lesser men and women.

Who the hell cares what some fawning TV pretty boy says about Gary Player? He's an egotist, pure and simple, and going to Augusta next year solely to add a meaningless record to his career.
