Wayne Player back on the fairways with his dad in Gary Player Invitational presented by Coca-Cola


For the first time in the history of the Gary Player Invitational presented by Coca-Cola, host Gary Player will be joined by his son Wayne as part of the glittering array of sports stars, celebrities, professional golfers and business leaders set to take part in South Africa’s leading charity golf tournament.

Wayne Player joins a list of professional golfers including multiple European Tour winners Richard Sterne and Jean van de Velde who will tee it up at The Lost City Golf Course from 12-15 November.

They will be joined by a host of celebrities including world-renowned musicians Ronan Keating and Brian McFadden, radio and television personality Johnathan Joseph, former Proteas cricketer Mark Boucher and former Bafana Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena.

Wayne Player’s inclusion in this year’s tournament will make for an even more memorable event for his father, Gary, who will be honoured with an 80th birthday party celebration during the tournament. And it will bring back the memories of a time when they shared the fairways as fellow competitors.
