Greg Norman to rejoin PGA Tour in 2003

Greg Norman will rejoin the US PGA Tour in 2003 as a full member, after losing his playing rights at the end of 2001.

A member on the American Tour from 1983-2001, during which time he won 20 sanctioned events including the British Open twice, Norman lost his card because he didn’t play in the minimum number of 12 events last year.

The Shark hasn’t yet decided on his playing schedule for next year, but because he won’t use the US Tour’s "home circuit exception" to play events in Australia, he won’t have to play a minimum number of tournaments to keep his card.

"I'm pleased that I will be able to compete as a member of the PGA Tour in 2003 while retaining my ability to play elsewhere in the world," Norman said on his official website, "I'm proud to be a Life Member of the PGA Tour just as I am on the European and Australasian Tours."

"Greg remains one of the most popular and exciting players in professional golf," PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said. "I'm pleased that Greg will again be a PGA Tour member in 2003 while having the flexibility to continue as a worldwide ambassador of the game."
