I never thought I'd type that headline about anyone, least of all Gary Player.

It's true, though. Player will pose nude in ESPN the Magazine's 2013 Body Issue, along with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Wizards point guard John Wall, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, WNBA star Swin Cash, tennis' marathon man John Isner and beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings.

The issue shows athletes without their clothes on but doesn't reveal anything.

Player, at 77, is the oldest athlete to ever pose for the yearly feature and will become the seventh golfer to do so.

Player is famous for his crazy workout regimen, which he has said is necessary because of the extensive travel over the course of his career. Player has called himself the "World's Most Traveled Athlete."

He presumably will be very stationary for the photo shoot. 

The magazine issue is set to for release on July 12.
