Does anyone beside me think that Normans swing (when looking from behind) is starting to look more like Garry Players? Something about the way he follows through does to me.

I wish I could play as well as Gary Player. I followed him around the Lakes a few years ago when he was paired with Baddeley. He shot 74 (one over) and he was in his 60's! He talked to the gallery, he was a true gentleman. I wouldn't mind a swing like Norman's either, however the best swing on tour is Retief Goosen's.

Anyone know what drill Norman is working on when he tucks that right elbow in all the time? I only noticed him doing that in the last couple of months.

normans swing is falling apart, the drill he is working on is called, i will try anything to fix my hideous game...he is not the same golfer anymore, he can not win...he is a great guy, wonderful for the game of golf, he is definately a fantastic role model..very top class...after all he did raise the bar of competition during his peak years...however, its time for him to hang up the sticks, and just focus on his course architecture and his winery...

I wouldn't say Normans swing is falling apart, his trying out new things, making adjustments as Nicklaus called it...

I think Normans got a couple more tournie wins in him, if his putting holds up, maybe one more Masters in him...

But he'll have fun on the Seniors Tour for sure!, no Tiger!

ucrgolf, I think you're being a bit harsh there. To me, Norman's swing is looking as good as it ever did. He is still in contention here and there...just wait he'll win again.
And I hope I'm in as good condition as he is when I'm in my mid 40's. Damn he looks fit.

I Agree
Greg is still a great golfer, sure noone expects him to excel but I believe he still generates a feeling of greatness that he truely deserves. A person who was number one in the world for so long can never be called finished

"hideous game" WOW great comment :roll:

\"hideous game\"  WOW  great comment :roll:

so i went a little bit over the top...i apologize.
i will be the first to admit, as i already have...as a norman fan, i am bit dissapointed with his play over the last couple of years...
and miike i am definately along side you in hoping that he wins again..he played well at the International recently, and lets just hope his good play continues...

The Shark has caused all Australian golf fans more heartache than you could imagine yet he remains a champion in all our eyes.

May he continue to play forever.

Here's the deal with Greg:

* He's 47
* He's had major shoulder surgery
* He has a huge business empire which takes up major chunks of time
* He has other personal interests outside of golf (fishing, family etc)

so it's hardly surprising that he is not as competitive as he once was. Look at some other guys his age - Curtis Strange, Larry Mize, Corey Pavin - they hardly ever make a cut these days let alone an impression.

The fact that Greg can still finish inside the Top 20 of tournaments is surely testament to his ability. I believe if he focuses wholly on golf for 6-12 months then he will win again, though I doubt it will be The Masters Rusty.

And now Greg can play anytime on the US PGA Tour thanks to the new ruling which counts his 2 British Open wins as PGA Tour victories, making his total 20 and entitling him to lifetime exemption.
