The Shark - ESPN 30 for 30


Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to put this thread but I just watched the ESPN 30 for 30 about Greg Norman. I was never really a Norman fan but I don't really dis-like him either. Obviously I think most people remember the 1996 Masters, but after watching the documentary, I guess I never realized how good he was. I'm not sure if he choked away all those majors or just got a little bit unlucky? I am also wondering if his involvement with LIV golf will in any way tarnish (more) of his legacy? He's seems like he's at peace with his career etc. so  I guess he doesn't give a sh*t.

He says he doesn't give a shit. I don't think that's true.

He also said "Had I won the 1996 Masters, my life wouldn't be one bit different now." Also, clearly a lie he tells himself.

I didn't think it was very good. The footage of him playing Augusta National was weak. They showed like two or three shots. Mostly it was B-Roll of him walking around.

The interviews were decent.

It's not a waste of 80 minutes, but it's definitely not great.

After watching that I kind of felt bad for the guy. But he’s being such a jerk with this LIV that I can’t really feel that sorry for him.

He is so rich from outside of golf he doesn’t care. $$$$

That much money buys you a quite a bit of "Who give a shit."

I watched his video on PGA MEMES showing off his house in Florida. I've always liked Norman, I imagine he's an ass in real life, but that's often the case with people that driven.

    • Day 38-41 Continued to work on rotation and weight shift drills through the middle/end of the week. Today I took my mom golfing as a belated Mother's Day gift. Also brought my son along for his first round ever. Played a par 3 course. Shot one-under. Which I'm pretty proud of given that it was a SLOW round with a 5 year old. Struck the ball really well, and putting was solid. All the work I put in putting has definitely paid off. Back to the days when I was automatic from 5 feet and in.  Was really proud of the little guy. He didn't once show any signs of mental fatigue or boredom. He even got a round of applause from a group of 8 guys after his tee shot on the last hole.  And no, we weren't holding up play. This particular course has added a soccer type course that runs in tandem with their traditional 9-hole par 3 course. Kind of interesting and hadn't seen anything like that before. Essentially 18 holes with a soccer ball. Where the "hole" is essentially a 55 gallon drum embedded in the ground. 
    • Day 126: Some priority piece practice and then a bit of short game practice. 
    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.
