Greg Norman introduces the Shark Experience. You won’t believe what it is.

Published

on

Greg Norman is nothing if not bold and willing to put his name on things.

Where to begin with this one? Right into the Shark-infested waters we go: The Greg Norman Company announced Wednesday the launch of something called the “Shark Experience.”

What does that name conjure up for you? Probably not this: the “Shark Experience” is a golf cart designed to revolutionize the game. Really.

Norman’s company has joined forces with the likes of Club Car and golf GPS technology firm GPSI to create the golf cart of your dreams. The Shark Experience cart features a HD-touchscreen that show live sports and highlights, streams videos and, you guessed it, plays Greg Norman instruction videos.

In addition, specially designed speakers are angled so riders can absorb the audio without disturbing those around them

Thus, the specific “experience” of the Shark Experience would seem to be watching Norman while riding in a Norman-designed contraption.

“Golfers have had little bits and pieces of this available to them with their iPhone, earbuds and bluetooth speakers. Now it’s all integrated into one,” Norman told Golf.com. “They now have all of this technology brought into one place, in a golf cart.”

Reportedly, there are also food and beverage options available and some variety of shot tracer.

“We’ve taken Top Golf from the driving range to the golf cart. We have everything they have, but now you’re on green grass,” Norman says.

The Shark Experience is slated to debut at the PGA Show in January.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Looking forward to this Experience?

    So which Greg story gets told? The narcissist? The British Open champion? The homewrecker? The ballstriker? The ones we want in the game can do their own homework.

    This is not growing the game for the right reasons, Greg. Thanks for encouraging the social media tards to pollute our hallowed grounds even more. The mess that the Tiger bandwagon left behind was hard enough. I’m disappointed in you Greg. Very disappointed. If it’s about money, you have enough. Disappear.

    Wonder how long it will be until someone watching a live stream crashes the cart and sues Greg Norman and the golf course. Would never add this to our carts. Plus I agree it would add to Round length

    Someone will need to tell everyone under 40 who Greg Norman was.

Back: Tiger Woods’ first-ever memoir coming to retail

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ memoir, “Back,” will be coming to worldwide retail after HarperCollins Publishers today announced that they had acquired the rights to the book.

“Back” will be the first-ever memoir authored by Tiger Woods, and according to a statement published on the 15-time-major champion’s website, the memoir is “a candid and intimate narrative of an outsize American life.”

The first and only account directly from Woods, with the full cooperation of his friends, family, and inner circle, “Back” covers Woods’ life from his growing up a celebrated golf prodigy through to his stunning 2019 Masters victory.

Speaking on the upcoming release of his memoir, Woods stated

 “I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time, and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative and wrong. This book is my definitive story. 

“It’s in my words and expresses my thoughts. It describes how I feel and what’s happened in my life. I’ve been working at it steadily, and I’m looking forward to continuing the process and creating a book that people will want to read.”

President and Publisher of HarperOne Group, Judith Curr, had this to say on acquiring the publishing rights to “Back”

“We are thrilled and proud to work with Tiger on what I believe will be the publishing event of the decade. Tiger will reclaim his own story and legacy and it’s a story for the world over.”

Jesper Parnevik handed a two-stroke penalty at the SAS Championship for NOT taking a mulligan

Published

on

At the SAS Championship on Sunday, Jesper Parnevik was handed a two-stroke penalty when he didn’t take a mulligan.

The incident occurred on the third hole of Parnevik’s final round, where according to Reuters, the Swede horseshoed a short bogey putt which came back and struck his foot. The veteran then tapped in for what he thought was a double-bogey, unaware that because the ball had accidentally struck him, he was required to take a mulligan. 

Speaking to Reuters, rules official, Brian Claar said

“When a ball on the putting green accidentally hits any person, animal or immovable obstruction, this stroke does not count and the ball must be replaced on its original spot.

Jesper tapped it in. In that situation he’s played from the wrong place. Unfortunately he gets a two-stroke penalty for playing from the wrong place, and the one where he tapped in counts but the original stroke does not count.”

If the situation sounds perplexing to you, then you aren’t alone.

According to Claar, when he called the USGA for assistance, the governing body asked him “Did that really happen out there?”, before adding that they had never heard of an incident like it occurring before in tournament play. 

Here is the rule which undid Parnevik explained:

Rule 11.1.b, Exception 2:

When Ball Played from Putting Green Accidentally Hits Any Person, Animal or Movable Obstruction (Including Another Ball in Motion) on Putting Green: The stroke does not count and the original ball or another ball must be replaced on its original spot (which if not known must be estimated).

Parnevik ended up making a triple-bogey on the hole and finished the event in a tie for 68th place.
