Greg Norman Net Worth
Greg Norman Net Worth: Greg Norman is an Australian professional golfer and entrepreneur who has a net worth of $300 million dollars. Greg Norman was born February 10, 1955 in Mount Isa, Australia. Greg Norman has racked up no fewer than 90 pro victories and was inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame in 2001. He played rugby and Australian Rules football while growing up, but became hooked on golf at age 15 after serving as a caddy for his mom, Toini. Within a couple of years he was playing to a scratch handicap and after participating in a series of amateur events, he turned pro at age 21 (1976). He began competing on the American PGA Tour full-time in 1983 and won the Kemper and Canadian Opens the following year. Norman became known as one of golf's more charismatic figures, but also developed a reputation for his inability to close out victories when the pressure mounted. In 1986, Norman entered the final day of play with the lead in all four major tournaments, but lost three of them. Despite his highly publicized shortcomings, Norman has achieved tremendous success in golf. His professional victories include two British Open championships, and he was ranked the No. 1 player in the world for a total of 331 weeks in the '80s and '90s. In addition, he led the PGA Tour in earnings and scoring average three times each, and was named its Player of the Year in 1995. Norman established the Greg Norman Golf Course Design company in 1987, and expanded into other business avenues even as he maintained his full-time touring schedule. He founded the Greg Norman Collection clothing line in 1992, and made his debut into the wine industry with the launching of Greg Norman Estates in 1996. Today, the golfing great maintains all of his thriving business interests under the umbrella of his company Great White Shark Enterprises.
