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.

Over ten years on from winning his first title on the PGA Tour, Chez Reavie made it career-win number two at the Travelers Championship.
