Greg Norman withdraws from Humana

Greg Norman has withdrawn from the Humana Challenge next week at PGA West and La Quinta Country Club because of a lingering right knee injury.

Norman is scheduled to see his orthopedic surgeon, Dr. James Bradley of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, next week.

“I was very excited about competing in the Humana Challenge and supporting the Clinton Foundation and my corporate partners, and I’m extremely disappointed that my condition has forced me to withdraw from the event,” Norman said in a release.

The 58-year-old Norman, who captured the Open Championship in 1986 at Turnberry and in 1993 at Royal St. George’s, played in the Humana two years ago, withdrawing midway through round three at 1-over-par for the day after posting scores of 72-71.

The man known as the Great White Shark also missed the cut at the 2012 Mayakoba Classic and has not played on the Champions Tour since missing the cut by one stroke in the 2012 Senior Open Championship at Turnberry with a score of 72-77–149.
