Norman undergoes shoulder surgery

Vail, Colorado - Greg Norman, who has missed the cut in two of the three tournaments he has entered this year, reportedly will undergo left shoulder surgery today that will sideline him for three months.

ESPN reported Tuesday that Norman will have a torn labrum, bone spurs and some degeneration repaired during the procedure at the Steadman Hawkins Sports Medicine Foundation in Vail, Colorado. The 43-year-old Norman will rehabilitate for 12 weeks and hopes to return for the Presidents Cup in December in his native Australia, ESPN reported.

Norman, golf's all-time leading money-winner, finished 27th at the season-opening Mercedes Championships in January, but missed the cut at the Doral-Ryder Open last month and failed to qualify two weeks ago at The Masters 's, where he was 10-over after two rounds.
