Tiger Woods has dropped to 258th in the official world golf ranking on the heels of another missed cut, this one at The Open last week.

But as Woods’ game continues to plummet, one former great hopes the 39-year-old can recapture his greatness soon.

Because in South African Gary Player‘s eyes, the sport needs Woods to spread the game globally.

Gary Player says when Tiger Woods is playing champion-caliber golf, it inspires kids around the world.

“We need Tiger Woods. Why? He’s a man of color. We need a black champion,” Player told Omnisport, a Europe-based sports news service, this week at the Berenberg Gary Player Invitational in Virginia Water, England. “Go to Africa, where we’ve got all these young black kids used to seeing a white guy as the champion. Now they’re getting inspired; they’re sitting in front of their TV sets. It inspires them; it gets them interested in golf.

“Asia wants to see a man of color. So there are many reasons besides being so charismatic. I don’t know if anybody in the world today can play like Tiger Woods did.”
