Norman: Probably would've beat Tiger

Greg Norman is never one to shy away from an interview and he certainly let it spill in a recent interview with Golf Magazine.

The former world No. 1 golfer said: “I never feared anything on the course, and I wasn’t afraid to fail. So I think I’d do pretty well against (Sam) Snead, (Ben) Hogan, Tiger (Woods) and Phil (Mickelson) – whoever. Tiger’s a tough guy, but I was a tough guy on the course, too. I probably would have beat him.”

Norman and Woods’ playing careers really never crossed paths. The two-time major champion’s career was just ending as Woods’ was heating up.

But clearly the Shark was talking about his game at his peak. Norman’s last win came in 1997, after which he only made 10 more starts through 2002. In that time span, Woods racked up eight major championships and 37 victories.
