Gary Player net worth: Gary Player is a professional golfer who has a net worth of $250 million. In addition to his net worth, Player is one of the most revered and respected of all PGA golfers, with millions of fans all over the world. As the third most winning golfer in the history of the PGA, Player has earned these fans due to his almost unparalleled skill at the game, in addition to his easygoing and charming manner away from the links. Player has not been totally free from controversy, however. In 1966 he was quoted as saying "I am a South African, a nation which is the result of an African graft on European stock and which is the product of its instinct and ability to maintain civilized values and standards amongst the aliens," a statement with clear denotations of racial prejudice. Player has since profusely apologized for the quote, even going so far as to claim that it wasn't made by him but instead the writer of the book. Now, however, Player's views on apartheid are very different, pledging $100 million over the course of his career to the underprivileged in South Africa, as well as inviting black golfer Lee Elder to play in South Africa, infuriating the then-apartheid government.
