Greg Norman was born and grew up in Mount Isa, Queensland, Australia. He spent his childhood on beautiful beaches and sports such as surfing, fishing, … which seemed to have nothing related to Golf. It was until he was 15 that he understood and loved this rich man’s sport. It was in a afternoon when his mother taught the 15-year-old Norman how to golf and allowed him to caddy for her at the Virginia Golf Club, Brisbane.
