Welcome to Appitude, a sports commentary show from our very own John Appicello — or as you know him, Appy.

Today, we’re talking about Gary Player and what he had to say about his ranking of golf tournaments.

Player, the nine-time Major champ and three-time Masters champ called Augusta and the Masters the 4th-best tournament out of the four major golf tournaments.

The remark isn’t such a stretch to imagine for Player. He and his son Wayne were banned from the Masters for trying to promote a golf ball company during an event to honor Lee Elder, the first Black man to ever compete in the Masters.

You can take a look at what Player did say and hear what Appy thinks in the video above.

We want to hear your thoughts on the topic, so be sure to leave your comments in the space at the top of this page and we’ll talk about it.

You’ll be able to find Appitude every other Thursday at 6:30 p.m., right after our 6 o’clock news.
