Norman says he has 2 years for another major

Greg Norman believes he has two more years to win another major championship.

The former world No.1 has not yet regained his old form in more than a year back on tour since undergoing shoulder surgery in April, 1998.

The road back to the top has been tougher than perhaps he envisaged and he's trying to be patient with himself, but after recently celebrating his 45th birthday, the two-time British Open champion knows the clock is ticking.

With the year's first major, the Masters, only two weeks away, Norman spoke about his goals for the next couple of years.

"I figure I've got eight good majors left in me and that will take me until the end of '46," said Norman, one of eight Australians who will contest the prestigious Players Championship starting on Thursday.

"When you're 45 or 46 you can still compete on the regular tour. I'm fit, I'm strong, I've recovered from the surgery so I know I've got the ability to play. From 47 onwards, it's a little different story.

"The next eight major championships are what I'm gearing for. I want to play all eight well. At the end of '93, I said I had that seven-year plan but I didn't anticipate having 18 months off after surgery."
