Greg Norman on The Match, Medalist, and the key to getting inside Michael Jordan’s head on the course

Published

on

On Tuesday, Greg Norman hosted a live edition of his SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio show, Attack Life Radio, where he discussed a number of topics relating to the game.

Speaking on The Match: Champions for Charity, Norman was full of praise for the event which raised over $20 million for Covid Relief, and also highlighted the philanthropic nature of the U.S. – which he believes is unlike any other country.

*All quotes courtesy of Greg Norman’s show, Attack Life Radio, on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio*

“I thought it was actually very compelling. … I thought from a television perspective I thought they did extremely well under the very tough adverse weather conditions. I thought the guys were completely engaging, not only from a joke standpoint, but engaging with Charles Barkley and the commentating booth. For people who had been frustrated in not seeing live sport for a long, long period of time, I believe the ratings were fantastic.

Kudos to Woods and Mickelson and Peyton Manning and Tom Brady for doing what they did [Sunday]. They raised a lot of money. I think it was like $20 million and it goes to show you how fantastic this country is. I’ve travelled the world, been to many, many different places, but never ever have I seen a country so philanthropic as what the United States is.”

Despite being one of the original designers of Medalist, Norman received no mention during Sunday’s broadcast, and many were surprised and curious in the week leading up to the event that he had not been invited to take part in the occasion.

After a caller asked Norman how he felt about not being mentioned, the multiple major champ refused to get drawn into the politics surrounding the subject – for which he drew praise from Co-host Brian Katrek.

For Norman, concerning his and Pete Dye’s work on Medalist: “as long as Tiger calls it his home golf course that’s a testament to Pete Dye and myself.”

“To get into the pettiness of what was going on leading up to the Match is really insignificant in the overall scheme of things. Small minds deliver small messages so at the end of the day I know what I’ve done. I know what Pete did. I know what we created. The members at the time, we filled up the membership very very quickly there because of the DNA, the culture of the club that I was a president of for over a decade. So I did something right, there’s no question. So the pettiness of a few is not going to spoil what’s in my brain about it. And I still get out there and play a little bit every now and then with my son. And at the end of the day, like I said, as long as Tiger calls it his home golf course that’s a testament to Pete Dye and myself.”

After ‘The Last Dance’, Michael Jordan has been a hot topic to discuss, and during Tuesday’s show, Norman revealed his key to getting inside Jordan’s head on the course.

“When I played with Michael he kind of felt like he could get the ball out there a long way. So sometimes when you are an athlete the first thing you start with is, like I said, understanding your competition and do you need to get into their head a little bit? With Michael I would just pound a drive as hard as I possibly could do in the first two or three holes just to get it by him by 10 or 20 or 30 yards or whatever you could do. And then the rest of the round he was just trying to outdrive you. So, psychologically you can play that game as well.”

The DailyWRX: What’s buzzing on social media (5/27/2020)

Published

Who is still reeling from The Match? I am. I have watched it twice now, and like a good Seinfeld episode, I am noticing little nuances that make it that much better.

Anywho, here is what was jamming on social media.

Besides TW or Phil…with lives on the line..

I want JDay.

I think everyone agrees with this one…

Ryder Cup with zero fans…it’s just a hard no.

Can we just get these two every day?

Can we just start a world tour like Billy Joel and EJ? Let’s workshop that idea.

Ollie could take….

…a good pic of an insurance billboard. Kid has skillz.

Elk asks a great question actually……

Selfishly, I love the idea of mic’d up players, but I suspect half of these players would have to become someone else as to not “say the wrong thing.” This whole thing vexes me. How about they pick 10 players a day…8 at random and two from the stud groups. Just a thought. That would at least keep you on your best behavior for only one day.Then you can go live your life and say what you want like an adult.
