真/CURIOSO : GARY PLAYER VERSUS DISCRIMINATION

「我站出來示威反對: 因為我是南非人。這些年來都有人想我死, 不存在世上。為什麼? 自1969年我於Dayton, Ohio職業高爾夫球協會的比賽失去冠軍, 敗給Raymond Floyd。 他們用冰雪拋向我的眼睛, 推撞我到草原上; 當我歡呼時, 他們會用電話簿擲向我, 以及當我輕輕擊球時, 他們會憤怒地高聲喊叫。因為一球的失誤失去了PMA名銜, 而落下這場。」

沒有一個高爾夫球選手會像我, 要忍受以上的傷害。

Gary player向南華早報報道

“I was demonstrated against because I was South African. For years they wanted to kill me. I lost in the 1969 PGA Championship to Raymond Floyd at Dayton, Ohio – they threw ice in my eyes, they charged me on the green, they threw telephone books in my back when I was swinging, and they screamed at me when I had a short putt. I lost the PGA title by one shot.”

“These are the conditions I had to play golf under – no golfer’s ever played under the same conditions I had to endure.”

– Gary Player as told to South China Morning Post
