"My father, after an official request to the organization, had to purchase a ticket to support the 13 players of LIV at the Masters. Despite this, hundreds of fans approached him at Augusta, saying nothing negative. We have received a lot of hate in recent years, yet the vast majority of people we meet encourage us.

So, in light of this, let's toast to an epic Masters and leave all the bullshit behind."

Greg Norman, statements

This is the vent, on X, by Greg Norman Jr, son of Greg Norman, CEO of the Arab Super League (a separatist circuit on the green), former world number 1, Major champion, and three-time runner-up at the Masters.

Gregory John Norman, known as Greg (born February 10, 1955, Mount Isa), is an Australian golfer and entrepreneur nicknamed The Great White Shark or simply The Shark. He emerged as one of the most beloved golfers by the public, admired for his aggressive playing style and charismatic demeanor, as well as his unconventional and edgy look.

Considered one of the most complete golfers of the 1980s and 1990s, he fell short of achieving all the goals within his reach. Driven by a passion for golf since his teenage years, he began achieving significant results on the international stage in the late 1970s.

Ranked as the world's best player from 1986 to 1997, he won the World Match Play Championship three times (1980, 1983, 1986), the Australian Masters three times (1980, 1983, 1984), and the British Masters twice (1981 and 1982).

In 1993, he claimed victory at the British Open with a record score of 267 strokes over the four rounds. In 1994, he won the US Professional Championship, setting a record of 264 strokes, a record that remains unbroken. He was also the season's top earner on the PGA Tour three times.

Despite his technical and physical prowess, Norman struggled with maintaining consistency and focus in Major tournaments, resulting in several second-place finishes throughout his career, during which he won 91 titles (up to October 2001), including only two Grand Slam titles: the Open Championship in 1986 and 1993.

He held the top position in the world rankings for a considerable period. Despite some declines due to the physical and mental toll of his long career, Norman consistently ranked among the top five golfers in the world. In 2001, he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Is this conversation helpful so far?
