Awkward Family Photos: Greg Norman On Morning Drive Edition

Nothing like starting your Monday morning listening to Greg Norman talk about his love for building sustainable courses or "18 signature holes," but until I can bring myself to transcribe some of the LOL moments from the Shark's appearance on Morning Drive, we at least have these two additions to the Awkward Family Photos collection.

Both Tweeted by the Shark his ownself!

First, the helicopter ride up...

And the happy group in studio:

I certainly know I hate it when I have to get up early in the morning to take the heli in for my appearances on TV.

I learned a new word this weekend - humblebrag - but Greg doesn't even bother with the humble part. Is the 7'4" reference regarding the circumference of his head?

I'll take Adam Scott for favorite Aussie.

Heard 30 seconds while drinking the morning coffee - Greg was talking about his ability to adjust course routing to accomodate more houses or even hotels. Turned it off promptly.

I know when I think of sustainable golf the first image I get is Greg Norman. Is anyone more clueless than the shark? The guy has become a caricature.
The Bill Coore interview that preceded it was fascinating.

Greg Norman Design is part of the Solution.. NIcklaus and Palmer Designs are the problem. Both built huge mostly terrible Golf Courses all over America most of which use huge amounts of water and are otherwise difficult to maintain.

Greg is a "Dick" everyone knows this.. but hey I prefer a "Dick" versus a passive aggressive "Snake".. just MHO!!!!

Is it any wonder why Sergio was a basket case?
12.2.2013 | Unregistered CommenterD. maculata
D. mac, is it any wonder Sergio was broken-hearted? Morgan Leigh is such a beauty.

I heard Norman say he wants his new courses to look like they've been there 20 years. That's such a great contrast with the architects I admire (e.g. Coore/Crenshaw, Hanse), who want their courses to look like they've ALWAYS been there; like they were built by natural forces.
I'll say it again - Paige MacKenzie is hot in a nice girl next door kind of way. Oh and she is a pro golfer. 10+

greg builds courses to look like they were there 40 years ago...i.e. they look they were built in the '70s....
12.2.2013 | Unregistered Commentersmails
The thing about courses that look like they've always been there is, you know in your heart they haven't always been there.

Oh yea +1

Rockport CC referred to by Coore as the star of he and BC hooking up is about a half hour from my house. The whooping crane winter home is right down the hiway from it as well, for all you birdie watchers.

I had a post about this and more, but it is in 010101 land and beyond.

Mr. Coore could be the most humble person on the his design partner, Ben Crenshaw. And now i would like to present the
exact opposite of everything you just watched...Greg Norman.
The "we" in golf design versus the "I" in golf design.
Type A, lone wolf elite athletes are not wired for humble

Someone should tell Charlie R. that guys wearing 42' (waist) slacks should not wear pleats! See the Tweets.
@DoverPro: Very true about the pant, but I would personally start with those horrible skateboarding moccasin-type shoes Charlie's got on his feet. He looks like a child among adults from the ankles down.

95% of wat Norman said was actually pretty smart
12.2.2013 | Unregistered CommenterRyan
Agree Ryan. I suppose he's an easy target on this blog.
12.2.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDonald Luke
Ah the Norman bashing. I guess it makes a change from the Tiger bashing
12.2.2013 | Unregistered CommenterUnderTheChin
Norman can say what he wants. The proof is in the pudding....or finished products in his case.
Gee I dont even like Norman but what he said was not THAT bad. At least he is somewhat clued in to less water usage. though some of those courses look like they use plenty of it!!
12.2.2013 | Unregistered Commentervwgolfer
I am a Norman fan. I think he is a regular guy in regular guy situations. He was the pro am partner of some friends back when the Tour Championship was in Houston, and they had noting but good things to say.

Yes he has an ego, but he has earned the right to throw out a little brag, IMHO.

Charlie, bless his pointed head, had really improved in the last year or so, and is it just me, or is Gary Williams only 5 foot tall?

Morgan is better looking than her father thinks he is!
