The PGA of America is making an effort to bring Greg Norman to the PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in suburban Detroit in August.
“I’m hoping we can get him to play here,” PGA of America CEO Joe Steranka said Monday at the club in Bloomfield Township, where he was speaking to the Detroit Economic Club. “He would be a special invitation. We’re going to talk about that this week with our executive committee that approves those invitations.”
That would go a long way toward making up for the Tiger deficit. I’ve already got my tickets, and if Norman shows, I know who I would be following.
However, Norman has made it pretty clear that he’s not going to expand his playing schedule.
