Greg Norman has told the BBC he's passing up his final year of Open Championship eligibility because he doesn't practice anymore and even more refreshingly, does not want to take an opportunity away from a younger player.
While we never want to see geezer champions pass up opportunities they are eligible for, the PGA Tour has seen its share of hanger-on types taking up spots. So it's refreshing to hear someone recognize their limitations.
The full interview is here, or Keely Levins has this summary of Norman's key reasons for not turning up at St. Andrews for one last bridge wave.
"I'm not going to walk up to the first tee and feel like I'm taking the space of a young kid who could learn a heck of a lot more from it. I don't believe in doing that. I think it's so unfair to do that."
