Norman Fumes Over Augusta National Snub
Australian golfing legend Greg Norman has expressed his disappointment at being snubbed by Augusta National Golf Club, the home of the Masters Tournament.
Norman, who won two British Open titles and was ranked number one in the world for 331 weeks, has never been invited to join the exclusive club.
The 64-year-old said he was “disappointed and surprised” by the snub, adding that he had been a member of other prestigious golf clubs around the world.
“I’m not sure why I haven’t been invited to join Augusta National,” Norman said. “I’ve been a member of some of the most exclusive clubs in the world, but I’ve never been asked to join Augusta National.”
Norman’s comments come after a number of other high-profile golfers, including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, have been invited to join the club.
Norman said he was not looking for special treatment, but he felt he deserved to be invited to join the club.
“I’m not asking for special treatment, but I do feel I should be given the same opportunity as other golfers,” he said.
Norman’s snub has sparked a debate among golf fans, with some arguing that he should be invited to join the club, while others believe that the club should remain exclusive.
Whatever the outcome, Norman’s comments have highlighted the importance of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament.
