Monday would have been Elvis Presley’s 83rd birthday. To celebrate the occasion, Gary Player tweeted a photo of himself with the late singer from his visit to the set of Presley’s 1961 film, Blue Hawaii.
When Elvis asked about the golf swing, I told him to really use his hips. He just laughed and said “Oh, I know all about that baby.” Happy Birthday to The King! GP pic.twitter.com/nmzM66118M
