AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Fifty-two years ago, Gary Player arrived at
the Masters with less than $5,000 to his name but an unwavering
confidence that he could beat anyone.
For one decade after another, Player teed it up with the greats
of the game at Augusta National and won three green jackets.
But no one lasts forever, and the Man in Black announced Monday
this will be his final Masters.
He did play long enough to set the mark for most Masters
appearances, snapping a tie with Palmer by playing in his 51st last
year. No. 52 will be his last.
