GREG NORMAN NEWS

TV golf coverage will benefit from Greg Norman's candor

I can hardly contain my excitement. The first week of May is going to bring one of the biggest events in the history of televised sports. No, it’s not the long-awaited Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Even though I’m a huge boxing fan, I’m talking about something much bigger and more important: the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball golf tournament. Before you put me in a straight jacket and...

Greg Norman Feels Sorry For Tiger Woods

It has been a very rough few years for Tiger Woods, who hasn’t won a major tournament since the 2008 U.S. Open. Ever since that happened, Woods has gone through a myriad of problems on and off the course. It has caused one of the greatest players of all time to actually begin to feel sorry for what has happened to Woods. [lead image via Getty Images Sports / Bradley Kanaris] Greg...

Greg Norman feels 'sorry' for Tiger Woods

  Greg Norman just can’t help but feel sorry for Tiger Woods.   It’s unlikely that Woods, a 14-time major winner will add to this legendary resume this weekend at the Masters where he’ll enter the final round Sunday eight strokes behind leader Jordan Spieth. Barring a miracle, Woods will remain shut out at golf’s biggest tournaments since winning the 2008 U...

Remembering 1996 Masters, Norman has advice for Spieth

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Nineteen years ago, Greg Norman found himself in a situation similar to what Jordan Spieth is facing at the 2015 Masters. Spieth, 21, was still in diapers when Norman, 41, opened his 16th Masters with a 9-under 63 and followed up with a solid 3-under 69 to take a four-shot lead into the weekend. Norman’s 132 was one shot shy of the 36-hole scoring record set by...

Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt: Baseball clock 'makes me cringe'

The slow pace of a baseball game, one of the charming elements of what was once America's pastime, seems to have become a problem. Personally, I question whether it is a real problem. After all, what are we talking about? Cutting 10 minutes out of a game that lasts 3 hours? If it was 30 minutes, I could see the concern. But 10? Come on, man! How about something important, like earlier...

Reading the tea leaves from the West Coast Swing

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) The Florida swing is the unofficial start of the road to the Masters, now just 44 days away and counting. Greg Norman made it feel that way a few decades ago. The Shark would play the Tournament of Champions in January and then not show up again until Florida, usually at Doral. He was No. 1 in the world a good chunk of that time, which only added to...

Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods As Bridesmaids, Part I

So, I got to thinking more about the Tiger Woods-Jack Nicklaus comparisons after last weeks post and despite the Greg Norman tease I think this makes a better read. Even most casual golf fans know Woods has dedicated his life to surpassing the record 18 professional Majors won by Nicklaus. Not as many know that […]Continue reading...

Reviews for Fox debut on golf: ‘Rough, but not without promising signs’

I caught a few minutes of Fox Sports’ debut on golf Saturday with Greg Norman’s Franklin Templeton Shootout. Frankly, it’s hard to make much of an assessment with a silly season event. It almost had the feel of a NFL preseason game, with no real juice or drama. My initial impressions were that the telecast seemed OK. I like Joe Buck and am quite sure he can be a good driver...

Norman on working first golf telecast for Fox: Will be as nervous as first tee shot at Augusta’

A little hyperbole from “The Shark” perhaps? From the AP story on Greg Norman working his first golf telecast for Fox Sports this weekend: Norman calls the broadcasting venture one of the top five things he has done in his life. ”I think going in I’ll be as nervous as I was walking the first tee at Augusta National and teeing it up for the first time,” he said.
