Cape Town - Gary Player's lawyer says the nine-time major winner has settled a dispute with a former friend over a $1 million transaction that took place in 1999.

Lawyer Rael Gootkin says Player and businessman Dave King have come to an out-of-court agreement.

King, who once caddied for Player at the US Masters, threatened to sue the golfing great for R33 million and claim some of his South African assets for not paying back what he said was a loan.
