The Shark has taken a few bites out of Medalist Golf Club.
Reportedly taking issue with the South Florida club’s hiring of Bobby Weed to restore the original Greg Norman-Pete Dye design, Norman has ordered that his and Dye’s name be taken off the course and also wants his memorabilia returned.
“It’s really a slap in the face at the end of the day,” Norman told Tim Rosaforte of Golf Digest via email. “It’s the end of a legacy by the board doing what the board is doing now. It hurts a lot to tell the truth. It’s a shame.”
According to the report, Norman offered his design company’s services for free in May, but the club opted for Weed, who began restructuring some of Medalist’s bunkers this summer.
