Well that didn’t take long. After only 15 months of wedded bliss, Chris Evert and Greg Norman have split up. This seems ironic given that Norman had to fork out one of the largest divorce settlements in history when he was forced to pay his ex-wife $103 million dollars. He had been married for 26 years to his former wife.

Today was the day that the two captain’s for the Presidents Cup, Fred Couples for the American squad and Greg Norman for the Internationals, were to reveal their two captain’s picks for their respective teams. While Couples stuck to the script, taking Lucas Glover and Hunter Mahan, Norman went off on a tangent, choosing one of the best young players in the world, then confusing everyone by picking a player who seems to be getting by on reputation alone. Norman’s choice of Ryo Ishikawa is a good one, for all the obvious reasons. He’s won three times this year on …read more
As the saying goes, “to the victor go the spoils,” and that couldn’t be more true for 2009 PGA Championship winner Y.E. Yang. In the span of a week, Yang has gone from being ranked No. 110 in the world, to besting Tiger Woods at Hazeltine, to becoming a member of the Presidents Cup International Team.

In the wake of Y.E. Yang’s improbable and stunning upset of Tiger Woods at the recent PGA Championship, there are more than a few golf fans who believe that Yang’s victory was a direct result of something Tiger rarely does…choke. Whether you’re one of those who buy that (he did give back 2-strokes on the front nine, and needed 33 putts for the round), or you believe that it was Yang’s unflappable play against the world number one player (Woods shot 75 on Sunday, not 80) that accounted for the upset, either way, it’s over. So, in order to ease …read more
Australia’s greatest golfer, PGA legend Greg Norman, has signed on to play in the next three Australian Open tournaments, including this year’s event at the New South Wales Golf Club. Norman has not played in the tournament since 2005, where he tied for 26th at Royal Sydney. “The Shark” has captured the Stonehaven Cup five times in his career, and at 54 years old still exudes the cool confidence that a sixth title is within reach.
Along with his commitment to the Australian Open, Norman has also signed on as an ambassador for Tourism NSW. Australian Open officials are hoping that …read more
