GREAT EXUMA, THE BAHAMAS | It’s late morning on an October Saturday in the Bahamas and Greg Norman has just finished something he rarely does – playing golf.
Norman didn’t play a full 18 holes – he went nine holes with a group of sweepstakes winners at his gorgeous Emerald Bay golf course at Sandals Resort then played a handful of holes with other guests who had been invited to join him during his two-day working visit in this sun-splashed Caribbean getaway.
In a different life, Norman was the best golfer in the world – not for a few weeks but for years. He was ranked No. 1 for 331 weeks, more than three times as long as any player other than Tiger Woods. But that ended two decades ago and only occasionally does the feeling come back.
