Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 132
to metal drivers and all their rewards, it’s easy to forget just how breathtaking Norman was with a woodenheaded dinosaur in his hands. You could watch him crush balls into that distinctive, soaring ball flight for days, and the wide margin of many of his victories smacked of intimidation. While those of us lucky enough to witness Norman in his prime will keep those memories safe, his impact on the golfing lives of our kids and our kids’ kids will almost certainly outstrip them, thanks to his golf course design empire. Those who’ve played his layouts don’t forget them in a hurry. Yet perhaps the reason we love him the most is his fallibility. For all his success, riches and fame, Norman is a man with flaws. Though he captured 20 PGA Tour victories in the US, 14 European Tour wins and 31 titles back home, spent 331 weeks as the world’s No.1 player, Greg Norman only has two major titles to his name. On nine occasions he came close to winning another one, yet time and time again it just wasn’t his time, epitomised by his 1996 collapse at the Masters, where he led Nick Faldo by six strokes but slayed himself with a tragically calamitous final round 78. Then there are his multiple marriages, most notably his short-lived union with former tennis champion Chris Evert, who took delight with Norman in giving us reams of sappy, over-the- top displays of affection, only for the whole thing to go belly-up within 16 months. And late last year the man with some of the most gifted hands and arms the sporting world has ever seen almost sawed one of them off during a spot of home gardening. Limbs intact, we wish Norman all the best for his seventh decade and beyond. Happy birthday, Shark. OTG OF COURSE IT’S HIS TURFED IN, NOT OUT GOT BEEF? HIS HOUSE OR YOURS?
