Here's why @garyplayer never flies by private jet: https://t.co/sJafYiPYBY https://t.co/CWDFVGfUXV
I’ve been called the world's most traveled athlete, but I believe I'm the world's most traveled human. I've been at it for 62 years, and I estimate that I've covered 23 million kilometers [14.3 million miles]. I don't fly private. It's a great and unnecessary extravagance. And I never fly first-class. I don't need the legroom, and it's a waste of money. I'd rather give that money to my grandchildren, or put it into my ranch. Early in my career, I'd fly 40 hours from South Africa to the U.S. to compete against the best in the world, stopping four times along the way. I'd have my wife and children with me. This was before the days of disposable diapers, and the planes were prop planes. I'd be in one of those small hard seats with incessant buzzing in my ears. I'd like to see Tiger and Rory travel the way I did! My one airport vice is chocolate. You can't be a martyr. I don't...
