Biography:

Sports speaker and entrepreneur Greg “The Shark” Norman is an Australian professional golfer currently playing on the Champions Tour. Greg ruled the PGA Tour during the 1980’s and 1990’s, spending 331 straight weeks as the world’s top ranked golfer and winning The Open Championship major tournament twice. Greg is probably best remembered for his impeccable resume of 2nd place finishes in major tournaments including 3 times at the Masters, 2 times at the U.S. Open and 2 times at the PGA Championship. Greg truly was a shark on the course and it was hard to believe someone of his skill was never fully rewarded for just how dominant he was on the course in his prime. In 2014, it was announced that the legendary golfer would join the Fox Sports broadcast team as the lead commentator alongside Joe Buck for its coverage of USGA events beginning in 2015.

Sports speaker Greg turned pro in 1976, playing mostly European Tour events and eventually joining the PGA Tour in 1983.  Norman has received multiple awards for his outstanding performance on the professional golf circuit throughout the years. Greg was the leading money winner on the PGA Tour 3 times in his career in 1986, 1990, and 1995. He is a 3-time Arnold Palmer Award winner, 5-time Byron Nelson Award winner and took home PGA Tour Player of the Year honors in 1995. Greg was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001.

His career on the course is certainly impressive, but his ventures outside of the game are equally impressive. He has numerous business ventures which include the Great White Shark Enterprises which produce products built around all aspects of the golf lifestyle as well as the Greg Norman Golf Course Design firm. Greg has a heart for others and is the founder of multiple charities including the Greg Norman Golf Foundation. Greg released his own autobiography, The Way of the Shark, in 2006. In 2012, he opened the Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The facility is currently the second largest golf facility in the United States.
