Norman incensed at course changes
Last updated: 23rd December 2012
Greg Norman has demanded that his name be taken off the Medalist GC he founded and helped design with Pete Dye.
The Shark has taken umbrage at a decision by the club to hire Bobby Weed, a former Dye disciple, to do a restoration of the original Norman/Dye design that opened in 1995.
In a letter sent to Medalist President Dee Mudd, Norman not only demanded that the club stop using his name and Dye's in reference to the design of the course, but also that his memorabilia, including a signature shark above the bar in the men's locker room, be returned to him.
"It's really a slap in the face at the end of the day," Norman told Golfdigest.com. "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."
Norman writes in the letter to Mudd that "the design integrity of the original designed course has been compromised by your alterations without consultation or discussion with neither Pete Dye nor me".
Weed started working on some of Medalist's bunkers this summer and was already under contract when Norman offered his design company's services for free in May.
