Norman Criticizes Appleby for Withdrawal

Australian Stuart Appleby has withdrawn from the Australian PGA Championship to play in the $2 million Sun City tournament in South Africa, and that concerns Aussie Greg Norman.
Appleby waited until Sunday night to notify surprised tournament officials. That is wrong, said Norman.
'If you decide a month ago to play South Africa and not the (Australian) PGA, that is your decision. But if you decide to play the PGA and then change, that is a different story,' said Norman.
Norman said Appleby put the organizers in 'a bit of a bind.'
