Golf great Gary Player tee'd up a discussion with Spartanburg Day School students about kindness, pursuing goals, physical health and, of course, golf Friday morning. Player spoke to students in fourth-12th grades before participating in a brief Q&A.
Answering a question from one of his three grandsons who attend SDS, Player recited his favorite quote: "The harder you work, the luckier you get."
