Greg Norman was labeled the "Great White Shark" by a newspaper reporter during the 1981 Masters Tournament. His interest in the game started with an unusual offer to his mother that he caddy for her during a regular mid-week game. Following the round, he asked if he could borrow her clubs and set out on his own.
What his mother could not have imagined was that the young boy who had never taken an interest in the game would become one of the greatest golfers the game has ever known. From the days in 1975 when he made $38 a week working as a trainee in the Royal Queensland golf shop, Norman has won three Arnold Palmer Awards as the Tour's leading money winner in 1986, '90 and '95. His crowning achievements are British Open Championships in 1986 and 1993. In total, Norman has won 91 professional events around the world, including 20 U.S. PGA TOUR titles. He has 29 top 10 finishes in Majors (Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship).
While Greg's well documented accomplishments on the golf course have assured his place in sporting history, his sound business acumen established him as a world-class entrepreneur. As chairman and CEO of the global Great White Shark Enterprises. Just as his business interests keep Greg busy, so do his passions. In addition to fishing, scuba diving and the pursuit of almost every outdoor activity, his keen interest in fine wines inspired him to create his own wine brand, Greg Norman Estates.
A collection of wines that not only represent his personal taste in wine but also the lifestyle he leads. By always believing in the power of his dreams and always setting out to Attack Life, Greg Norman is truly the ultimate adventurer.
