Gary Player played golf with Yao Ming

Forget David and Goliath – we’re more interested in these pictures of Chinese NBA star Yao Ming meeting golfing great Gary Player.

The two sporting legends made for a highly unusual pairing on the golf course at the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am in South China over the weekend.

Ming’s incredible length of 7 feet 6 inches helped him become a NBA Hall of Famer with the Houston Rockets, while Player stands more than two feet shorter but never let his stature prevent him from becoming one of the best golfers the world has ever seen.

It looks like you could fit two Garys into one Yao!
