You've seen the photos of Gary Player posing nude for ESPN the Magazine's "Body Issue" by now (if you haven't, click here) but how about why he did it and the work that went into it.

You're in luck because Player talks about that in this video.

My favorite parts:

-- When he starts slugging himself in the abdomen at the 0:18 mark -- "THIS IS LIKE A PIECE OF WOOD!"

--At the 0:47 mark he says "people at my age, they're dead! I'm just beginning, man!"

-- 3:10 mark, more hitting himself.

-- At the 4:00 mark the image of Player sitting there, presumably nude, just shaking his head at the photos is pretty surreal.

Finally, here's a great GIF of Player on his treadmill:
