Greg Norman is golf’s most
complex and controversial celebrity and perhaps its most gifted and charismatic
player. He reigned as the world’s number-one-ranked golfer for most of a decade
and began 1998 as the PGA Tour’s career-earnings leader with almost $12
million. As ruthless in the boardroom as he is on the golf course, the Shark
turned a $2 million stake in Cobra Golf into a payoff of more than $40 million.
Three parts Crocodile Dundee, two parts Jack Nicklaus, and one part Don
Quixote, the jet-setting Shark is larger than life. Yet Norman is also the
sport’s most notorious victim of cruel calamity and inexplicable defeats. This
riveting biography by acclaimed journalist Lauren St. John examines Norman’s
conquests as well as his failures and his relationships with his father, his
agents, and fellow golfers.
