DURING A BREAK in play at the Humana Challenge in California Saturday, Terry Gannon and Nick Faldo welcomed Gary Player to the booth to talk about fitness and how the 78-year old has managed to stay so healthy.

Faldo teased Player with a cupcake, before tossing it behind his head where the tasty treat remained in place on the window for the remainder of the segment.

Its magical abilities probably has more to do with the sugar content than actual magic, but still, it’s a new one on us.
