Travel…The University of Life!
It’s simply life changing!
In an interview at the 2004 US Senior Open, Gary Player said: “I love people, and I love travel.
I find it -…well, it’s without a question the best education that one can obtain,
better than any college degree or university.”
One of the world’s most successful golfers of all time, Gary Player once said he believes that “Travel is the University of life!”. This was in response to a challenge he faced as a devoted family man who had to travel frequently to compete in international tournaments.
He was often accompanied by his wife, Vivienne and their six children, taking four taxis, three hotel bedrooms and carrying as many as 33 bags!! Although he often jokes that he had to win tournaments just to break even, he is serious about the value of travel experiences and the impact it had on his children’s lives.
With 163 international tournament wins, Player is 63 wins ahead of the man whom many consider to be the greatest golfer of all time, Jack Nicklaus. However, Player is admired all over the world not only for his golfing accomplishments but also for his dedication to the principles of excellence and his incredible wisdom.
Take advice from this legend…he is after all the most travelled athlete in world history, having spent an estimated four years of his life in flight, with over 14 million air miles under his belt!
