Greg Norman is as motivated
as he's ever been for his three upcoming tournaments in Australia, according
to close friend Nick Price.
Norman arrives in Australia
this weekend to prepare for the Heineken Classic, Greg Norman International and
Price has spent the past
few weeks practising with Norman at the exclusive Medallist Club in Florida.
"Greg is so motivated to
play and he's been practising hard which is always a good indicator for me to
see how many hours a guy puts in", Price said.
"He's been working so hard
and I do think he's going to have a really good year".
Price said Norman's off-course
business dealings - golf course design, clothing and apparel, grass growing,
theme restaurants, pasta sauces and energy bars - could again take a back seat
to golf as Norman tries to regain his best form following shoulder surgery.
"It's not as though his
priorities have changed but he got himself into the business side of things when
he had that shoulder injury.
"But now he wants to play
again and that's great."
