Gary Player is not human.

The Black Knight is allegedly 80 years old, yet saying he doesn't act his age is an understatement on par with calling Augusta National "a nicer course than most." Player professes to still do thousands of push-ups a day, and boasts a scoring average around 70 on the course.

In his victory march towards the green, Player could be heard saying "That's No. 31." As in, 31 career holes-in-one. Going on a limb and saying that's slightly more than your personal total.
