Gary Player also expressed his condolence. Player remembered the times when he was still a boy. That will forever remain in his memory. "In 1947, I remember being at school when the Queen and her family drove past.

I vividly remember seeing her wave at us - she had grace and valor as a young lady, and that remained throughout her tenure as Her Majesty. She was a fine leader and even finer woman. Rest In Peace."- Player wrote on Twitter Thomas Bjorn emphasized that Queen Elizabeth II was an inspiration to everyone; "Living most of my adult life in England I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Queen Elizabeth.
An inspiration to so many all over the world.
Rest in peace, Your Majesty."
