Greg Norman planning a big summer

The sure sign that Greg Norman isn't playing much golf is that his hands are free of calluses.

Norman is recovering from knee surgery in February, and he expects doctors to give him the green light in June to start practicing with a busy summer schedule that starts with the U.S. Senior Open the last week in June and takes him through the Jeld-Wen Tradition the last week in August.

"I know that sounds like a lot of golf," he said. "Last year coming out of my back surgery, it probably was a lot of golf."

Norman said his knee is fine, but he needs to spend the next six weeks rebuilding muscles in his thigh and calf because he hasn't used his right leg properly since September. He has been coming back from surgery more times that he would like, although this break of nearly eight months is the longest he can remember.

"I'm excited about getting back, but I'm also interested to see how excited I will be come middle of June," he said.

Norman also said he was "courted" by CBS Sports a few years ago about being its analyst in the booth with Jim Nantz. The Shark said he turned it down because he had spent the last 25 years being gone on the weekend.

"For me to pack my bags on a Thursday, go away on the weekends for the next five or six years, I don't think you guys have enough money at CBS," he said.
