A Portrait of Greg Norman.
The rise and pause and rise of Greg Norman is one of the great stories of Australian sport. Norman's smashing win in the British Open of 1993, at Royal St George's, Sandwich, Kent, followed by the rough justice which stole the US PGA crown from his grasp, were characteristically jagged events in an extraordinary, roller-coaster career. Triumph had once again been followed by tragic and seemingly unfair loss.
Phil Tresidder's brilliant tribute to Australia's finest golfer, 'The Shark Bites Back', puts Norman's mighty career in razor-sharp perspective. Australia's foremost golf writer, Tresidder has covered, observed and marvelled at the Shark's rampage through the world of golf since he first glimpsed Norman as a precocious and brilliant new talent in the late 1970s.
In these pages he tells of Norman's progression from Queensland beach bum to his current exalted standing as the greatest money-winner in golfing history. Through the author's acute and expert observations new light is thrown on the Shark's good days...and on his bad, when major titles slipped almost unbelievably through his fingers.
Written with warmth and affection, and supported by 80 striking photos of one of the world's most photogenic sportsman, 'The Shark Bites Back' is a rivetting inside look at a champion of sport.
