Norman renegotiating Australian Open deal

Greg Norman is negotiating with the Australian Golf Union to renew his contract to play the Australian Open.

Norman's six-year deal expired after the Open at Kingston Heath last November but the AGU is confident he will be back shooting for a sixth national crown this year.

The tournament is be played on a course Norman designed - The Grand on the Gold Coast.

The charismatic former world No.1 has been the greatest drawcard on the Australasian tour for many years, his presence virtually guaranteeing the success of any tournament.

A group of youngsters headed by Aaron Baddeley and Adam Scott is moving up the pecking order but Norman has star quality and a history which mean an Australian Open would hardly seem like an Open without him.

"We're in negotiations with him at the moment," said AGU chief executive Colin Phillips.

"Greg hasn't missed many Australian Opens so you'd have to say there's a fair chance of him playing again this year."
