Gary Player has accused his son of attempting to sell his memorabilia without permission.

The retired golfer released a statement on Twitter, claiming that his son Mark has put some of his collectibles up for auction behind the player's back.

"I would like to draw the attention of the public to the fact that many trophies

and other memorabilia that are part of my legacy, put up for auction by my son and former manager,

Mark," the statement on Twitter read. "These items are mine and I have taken action to recover them.

I have not put any item up for sale - whether by auction or otherwise."

Twitter users expressed outrage over the player's allegations.

This is not the first family saga that has come to the fore. Two years ago, the nine-time Majors champion got a $5 million settlement

and their names and likeness rights from the Gary Player Group, a company owned by Mark.

Gary Player has now called out his son again for trying to illegally profit from his name.
