A 53-year-old Australian lit up a wet and windy Open last week - and he did it in style. Previously winning in 1986 and 1993, Greg Norman at his best could play links golf as well as anyone in the history of the game, and at Royal Birkdale he showed us that enough of his game and vitality remains to allow him to seriously compete, despite nowadays rarely playing tournament golf. Walking tall and receiving standing ovations across the course day after day, Greg Norman is a heroic and distinctive icon and his warmth of spirit and fair play was paid tribute to by winner Padraig Harrington when he went on to finally raised the claret jug.
“I came here with a good attitude and a fresh approach to life and it has shone through in my game. I don’t grind it out on the golf course any more. I just play when I want to and practice when I want to,” Greg told a mesmerised media. Greg Norman certainly turned heads and stirred hearts in his distinctive shark-logo cap, and the Greg Norman Collection pieces he wore throughout the four days included a superb lightweight and noiseless long-sleeve Weatherknit, appropriately water resistant and wind-proof to brave the testing elements, and a luxury Performance Cashmere crew neck sweater that is knitted with spandex for a superb performance fit.
All pieces are from the new Greg Norman Collection Autumn/Winter range and all bear the distinctive shark logo that this week holds its place as surely one of the most highly recognised and respected logos in golf.
