    Just saw the Golf Hall of Fame commercial and the guy said come see the King (Arnie), the Bear(Jack) and the Black Knight? WTF?! Never heard that before and I am assuming that Woods. Have the rest of you seen this or heard this nickname?

    Since Gary Player always wore black I am thinking they might have been referring to him

    Think Bill is right about Player being the Black Knight & I know the King & Bear are correct labels

    He was the one talking. The logo for his company is a black knight as well.
