Player On Humana: "This is the single-most important tournament on tour"

Ron Sirak says it's time for some of the big names to cut the cord with their appearance fee addictions and show up to Bill Clinton's Humana Challenge.

Former President Clinton announced Tuesday that 31 individuals and organizations have pledged $100 million for a variety of community-based projects to bring the healthy living messages to as wide of an audience as possible. Among that money is a pledge by the PGA Tour to fund a coordinator between the Clinton Foundation and deserving neighborhood organizations.

"This is the single-most important tournament on tour," nine-time major championship winner Gary Player said Wednesday at PGA West, where the Humana Challenge is played on the Palmer and Nicklaus Course, as well as at nearby La Quinta CC. "If I was a professional golfer, I would make it my business to play here this week because you are helping get a message through to a country that really needs the message."

I'm not quite sure that it lives up to a major, well except for the PGA Championship maybe, but Gary's got a point about healthy living. Rumour has it that he was doing one armed pushups throughout the entire interview.

The interviewer was actually standing on his back during Player's one armed push-ups. Afterwards they enjoyed a zucchini - carrot smoothie.
