Norman's mother aces hole at son's course

The mother of Australia's former world number one Greg Norman has scored an ace on the Pelican Waters golf course designed by her son.

Toini Norman, 72, said she immediately sent an email to her 48-year-old son, who lives in Florida, to describe her effort on the 160-metre 14th hole on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

Norman said she introduced the double British Open winner -- known in the sport as the "White Shark" -- to golf when they lived in the Queensland mining town of Mount Isa.

"We thought we'd give it a go and it's eventually how Greg became interested in the game," she was quoted as saying on Tuesday by Australian Associated Press. "I was still playing when I was seven months pregnant with him."
