Norman Fades In Senior Open Championship Despite Chrissie's "Different Thought Process" Instillation Efforts
Loren Roberts won the Senior Open Championship after Greg Norman faded following Saturday's 64. Earlier in the week, The Australian's Patrick Smith took Norman to task for suggesting that ex-wife Laura somehow cost him some majors.
He was asked this: "Had Chrissie been in your life 20 years ago would you have won some of those that got away?"
Norman replied: "Chrissie would have instilled a different thought process and I would have said the answer would probably be 'yes'."
Laura's thought processes must have been pretty good during his 88 international tournament victories and his two British Open wins but, apparently, she just got ornery at the Masters, the US Open and the US PGA.
Like the 1986 PGA when Bob Tway holed out from a bunker on the 18th. Bloody Laura. Or the US Open the same year when Norman shot a final-round 75 after leading. The bitch. Then a year later Larry Mize holes out from hell on the 11th, second hole of a play-off for the Masters. Quit playing with his mind, woman. Or in the 1989 British Open playoff when he whacked the ball dead into a fairway bunker. Damn you Laura.
If Laura had this much power over the man as he built a business empire, then she really did earn her multi-million dollar divorce settlement, no?
And what does it say about Chrissie's thought process techniques that Norman had to cut staff recently?
