Greg Norman lining up senior debut

Greg Norman is targeting the Senior British Open as his debut tournament on the senior golf tour.

"I would say that one would definitely be the one I'll play in," the former world No.1 golfer, who turns 50 next month, said yesterday.

Norman, who will travel to Australia for the Heineken Classic at Royal Melbourne from February 3, has scaled back his tournaments in recent years to build a global wine, golf course design, housing development and clothing business empire.

July's Senior British Open in Ireland would be perfect for his schedule, he said.

"I haven't committed [to the senior tour] but I would definitely go play in that one," Norman said.

"I've always loved the British Open and I believe it is going to be in Ireland somewhere so it will be nice to go back there and play."

Norman said he would be playing the tournament to win, although business commitments in Australia, Middle East, South Africa, South America and US in the next six months will consume most of his schedule.

"I'm going back to Australia twice between now and May," Norman said.

"I've got a lot of work to do in the Middle East, South America and South Africa so I'm going to be travelling around a lot until maybe the end of June and then I'll make my decision [about playing in the Senior British Open]."

Turning 50 was not a major milestone, Norman said.

"It's just a number," he said.

"You wake up that day feeling the same way."

He was in Los Angeles yesterday to host the Greg Norman Estates Golf Day - an event organised as part of the G'Day LA Australia Week festival. The event involved 124 Australian and US business leaders.

Norman held a one-hour demonstration at LA's El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana for business leaders and played at least one hole with all 124 players.
