People across social media have been honoring nine-time major champion and fitness freak Gary Player on his 82nd birthday - by planking.

After being tasked with doing 81 sit-ups for Player's birthday last year, PGA Tour players and fans were challenged to plank for 82 seconds this time around. Rory McIlroy and Martin Kaymer were among those to participate in #Plank4Player.
