Sure you do! If for no other reason that seeing how an octogenarian executes a reverse somersault after balancing on the side of a vessel, Gary Player’s tweet is worth checking out.

With respect to the execution, the judges won’t all be holding up “10,” but give Player a few more chances, and we’re sure he’ll get the full rotation down.
All fun and backflips off boats aside, Player’s point in posting the video is an important one. Age is just a number. Hang out with those who are full of energy and you’ll feel the same way…even if you’re 81.
Of course, if you’ve become old and decrepit, it’s difficult to reverse course, so prepare for old age the way Gary Player did, with thousands of sit-ups and crunches every day, a respectable diet, and, most importantly, plenty of golf.
