Consider yourself warned.

Gary Player, the 77-year old Hall of Famer, will appear in ESPN The Magazine’s upcoming Body Issue, scheduled to hit newsstands on July 12.


That means the Black Knight will be the In-The-Buff Knight.

The annual edition celebrates athletes and their bodies, and Player will become the oldest athlete to be included. He will share the pages with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Washington Wizards guard John Wall, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey and others, who pose in the nude.

Player, in the unlikely event you didn’t know, has preached the value of exercise and good health for decades. We’ll get the chance to see him as we haven’t seen him before.
