Over the years I’ve always been a fan of Greg Norman’s golf but never a fan of his course designs. Until I went to Mayakoba in Mexico where his company did a fine seaside course. We saw every shot of a 62 he had in the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey one year, he was a pure player and still is based upon his recent close finish in South Africa while accompanying his fiance who was signing a deal in the area. GOLF INTERNATIONAL this month has a fine article about Greg and his ambition, successes, etc. But the one quote sort of leads me to thinking maybe he’s still a wanker, a very successful one.
“I don’t play the Senior Tour. I’ve done enough for the PGA Tour. Why should I go out there and support the Senior PGA Tour, try to lift them up, like I did in the ’80s and ’90s”. Does he have a point? I’ll ask him at Mayakoba in two weeks.
