Where was the mental toughness Greg Normal talks about using to beat Tiger Woods when he couldn’t beat Nick Faldo?

It’s amazing to hear about how tough golfer Greg Norman is when he was asked if he thought he could beat Tiger Woods. There is no doubt Norman was a great golfer. But mentally tough?

Norman never has shown the mental toughness...
