Food poisoning downs Norman
Last updated: 13th December 2012
Former world number one Greg Norman withdrew from the Australian PGA Championship after only two holes due to a bout of food poisoning.
The 53-year-old Australian carded bogeys on both holes he played during his opening round at the Palmer Coolum resort in south Queensland before declaring that he couldn't continue.
"He's had a bad night," Australian PGA chief Brian Thorburn told members of the press.
"He tried to soldier on through the tournament but after a couple of holes it just wasn't possible for him.
"He's under medical attention at the moment."
Norman was one of the event's biggest draw cards, along with 2006 US Open winner Geoff Ogilvy and former Open Championship winner Darren Clarke.
