Greg Norman, possible resignation from LIV

Greg Norman, possible resignation from LIV

the fate of Greg Norman In the last 48 hours, Greg Norman’s name has been bouncing around all over the media. But not, as usual, because of some statement he made or some new frontal attack he suffered. This time the topic is his possible resignation.

The Telegraph also offers the name of his replacement, Mark King, former CEO of TaylorMade. King puts Yasir Al-Rumayyan, governor of the Saudi Public Investment Fund that supports the circuit. During the season, he attended several LIV Golf events, and last September he said he believes the new Tour will find its place in the pro golf ecosystem within five years.

The excellent results obtained at the helm of TaylorMade-Adidas (increase in turnover from 263 million to 1.5 billion $) represent a heavy business card for King. The appointment of a high-profile figure is a fact considered of the utmost importance for the LIV in view of its second season which will see the increase in events (from 12 to 14) and the increase in the prize pool to $405 million.

The news, which I would like to define as well circumscribed, was however denied by the general manager of LIV Golf, Majed Al-Sorour. “Greg Norman is our CEO and Commissioner. Any hypothesis of change relating to his office or his role is clearly false”.

Gregory John Norman, aka Greg (Mount Isa, February 10, 1955), is an Australian golfer and entrepreneur nicknamed The White Shark or simply The Shark [1]. He has proved to be one of the most loved golfers by the public, both for his particular aggressive playing style and for his charismatic attitudes and the same look inspired by a veiled transgressive non-conformism.

[2] He is considered to be one of the most accomplished golfers of the 1980s and 1990s, even though he did not achieve all the goals that seemed within his reach. Animated by the passion for golf since he was a teenager, he began to achieve significant results in the international field already in the second half of the seventies.

Best player in the world from 1986 to 1997, he won the World Matchplay tournament three times (1980, 1983, 1986), the Australian Masters (1980, 1983, 1984) and twice the British Masters (1981 and 1982). In 1993 he won the British Open with a record of 267 strokes over the four days of competition.

In 1994 he won the American professional championship in which he also set a record of 264 strokes, the limit still undefeated. Three times he was the best of the season in terms of PGA Tour awards. To his technical and physical skills, however, Norman has not been able to combine a sufficient continuity of action and concentration in the Major tournaments, so much so that he knows several second places during his career in which he won 91 titles (until October 2001 ), of which only two were from the Grand Slam: the 1986 and 1993 Open Championships.

[3] He has long occupied the first position in the world ranking of the best golfers. Despite some downturns due to the physical and mental strain of his long career, Norman has practically always remained among the top five golfers in the world. In 2001 he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
