Norman Evert say they have separated


Just 15 months after they were married, golf star Greg Norman and tennis great Chris Evert announced they have separated.

The announcement Friday comes three days before Norman is to captain the International team at the Presidents Cup in San Francisco, where wives of the captains take on a visible role.

Norman and Evert, each in the Hall of Fame in their respective sports, did not say whether they planned to divorce.

In a statement, the couple said only, We will remain friends and supportive of one another's family. The statement said they requested privacy for them and their families.
