Jupiter Island’s Greg Norman talks winning, losing, and his business career

From Today’s Golfer: The Great White Shark recently celebrated his 60th birthday. He wanted to mark the occasion by doing something special and so he decided he would swim underneath the Antarctic ice cap. “The water is gin clear, and the sound of the whales and other marine life is extraordinary,” Norman says. “I’ve heard that if you look up at the 60 feet of ice above you, it’s a beautiful blue.”

Unfortunately, the boat Norman was going to charter couldn’t accommodate his entourage and so instead, the Aussie celebrated hitting 60, quietly at home, with a small party of 75 or 80 friends. 

Norman’s ‘near misses’ with majors are legendary and unique. It’s no exaggeration to say that had luck not deserted him at vital moments, the Great White Shark could easily have eight or nine to his name instead of just the 1986 and 1993 Open Championships. Given the pain the memories of those close calls in the game’s premier events must evoke, it’s ironic that Golf World meets Norman at ‘Tranquility’, his home in Jupiter Island since 1991.
