Greg Norman withdrew during his third round of the Humana Challenge.
Norman went out in 2-over-par 38 at PGA West's Palmer Private Course before calling it quits. He was an aggregate 1-over through 45 holes and faced a steep uphill climb to survive the 54-hole cut. This was his first start in a PGA TOUR event since the 2009 British Open. Sun, Jan 22, 2012 10:38:00 AM

International captain Greg Norman selected Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley as his wildcards for the President's Cup in November.

Absolutely no surprise that the Australian chief went with two fellow countrymen for the event to be held at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in their homeland. Allenby, who lives in Melbourne, will be making his sixth appearance. Baddeley will be making his debut. They'll be joining three other Aussies -- Jason Day, Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy -- who qualified automatically. The remaining seven qualifiers were Charl Schwartzel, K.J. Choi, Kyung-tae Kim, Retief Goosen, Ernie Els, Y.E. Yang and Ryo Ishikawa.

Greg Norman has withdrawn from next week's British Open.

Norman had surgery on his right shoulder in September (recall him in a sling at the President's Cup) and hasn't played competitively since. "I’m disappointed that I will not be able to participate in this year’s Open Championship, but unfortunately, it is taking me longer than expected to regain my competitive form," Norman said.

Greg Norman chased his opening 70 with a 5-over-par 77 at the Masters, missing the cut by two strokes.

Norman was on the cut line when he arrived at the 13th hole today, but a double bogey-7 at the hole and two more bogeys on the way in derailed his hopes of playing the weekend. Unless he performs more magic at the British Open, this was likely his final appearance at Augusta National.

Greg Norman signed for a 2-under-par 70 after his opening round of the Masters.

Back in Augusta for the first time in seven years, Norman played like he never left, hitting 11 (of 14) fairways and minimizing his mistakes, carding just one bogey. Moreover, his hopes of winning the Green Jacket remain alive for one more day.

Greg Norman has declined a special invitation to compete in next week's PGA Championship.

Norman had until today to decide whether he was going to tee it up at Oakland Hills next week but the rigor of four straight events proved too much at this time. He last played in the PGA Championship in 2003 (MC). Expect the Hall of Famer to accept an invitation to play next year's Masters by virtue of his T-3 finish at Royal Birkdale.

Greg Norman posted a final round of 7-over-par 77 and finished in a tie for third place at the British Open.

Norman's two shot overnight lead melted as he bogeyed his first three holes on the round, but at that point he started to play steady par golf and actually held the lead by a stroke at the turn. The back nine saw three bogeys in the first four holes, and even though he picked up a shot at par-15th hole, Norman needed Harrington to make a mistake, but that never happened. The third place finish in the Open means that Norman will now receive an invitation to next year's Masters.

Greg Norman posted a third round of 2-over-par 72 and leads the British Open by two strokes over defending champion Padraig Harrington and K.J. Choi.

High wind conditions that came to the edge of unplayable would have been the biggest news of the day, but instead the story of Greg Norman leading the British Open at the age of 53 years-old will be the lead item. He fell out of the lead after carding three bogeys in first six holes, but a six-foot birdie putt at the 8th hole, coupled with a bogey by K.J. Choi, created a four-way tie for the lead at 2-over-par. It looked like the whole field was going to be in the tournament after Norman and Choi double-bogeyed the impossible 10th hole, but Norman was able to pull away from the field with birdies 14th and 17th holes. A victory on Sunday would be Norman's third career British Open championship and he would become the oldest player to win an Open title.

Greg Norman has carded consecutive 70s in the British Open and is the early clubhouse leader through 36 holes.

Vintage Norman so far. Today's round featured another set of long-range putts for pars and birdies, including at the last, where Norman putted onto the fringe, only to make the comebacker. At the conclusion of his round, he was the only golfer at an aggregate even-par through two rounds.

Greg Norman carded an even-par 70 in the opening round of the British Open.

Looking very much like The Shark of the 1980s and 1990s, the two-time British Open champ had a relatively clean card, with just two bogeys against two birdies. This is his first Open since 2005 at St. Andrews, where he placed T-60. That also happens to be the last time he cashed in a PGA Tour start.

Greg Norman has committed to the Mayakoba Golf Classic on the PGA Tour, scheduled to begin on February 21.

This is great news for the locals and anyone else that might be there and hasn't seen The Shark tee it up in person but the only fantasy players that should make note of this are those in weekly leagues. Norman hasn't cashed a paycheck in an official PGA Tour event since the 2005 British Open. This appearance challenges the all-time record for weakest, short-term fantasy impact of a Hall of Famer.

Greg Norman withdrew from the PGA Championship citing muscle fatigue after playing in each of the last four weeks.

He probably wasn't going to win anyway, but then again, his replacement, Kevin Sutherland probably isn't going to either.

Greg Norman, making his Senior (Champion's) Tour debut at the Senior British Open finished third, one stroke back of Tom Watson and Des Smyth.

He drained a 25-footer on 18 for birdie that pulled him within a shot of the lead, but just missed getting into a playoff with Watson and Smyth. Loren Roberts was also making his Senior debut, and managed to finish fifth, just behind Craig Stadler.

The host of the event, Greg Norman, teamed up with Scott McCarron this weekend. They finished -25.

Norman/McCarron finished T4 four shots back of the leaders. They each earned $87.5K for the three rounds played. Not bad for a few days work.

Greg Norman DQ'd himself after playing a provisional ball on Friday.

He played a provisional after his first ball was thought to go into a water hazard. You can't do that. The only time you can play a provisional is when your first ball is believed to be lost, not in a hazard.
