2015 02 137434858

The golf world is saying a big happy birthday to two-time major champion Greg Norman today as he celebrates his 60th birthday.


The Australian, known to millions of golf fans around the world as ‘The Shark’, has had an illustrious career since turning professional in 1976.

He won the first of several European Tour titles at Blairgowrie in 1977 and went on to taste success in the Open Championship twice, in 1986 and 1993. He was runner-up in 1989 and finished second in the three other majors on seven occasions between 1984 and 1996.

Inducted to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001 and awarded the BBC Overseas Sports Personality of the Year accolade in the years he won the Open Championship, Norman also possesses arguably the coolest website URL known to man: www.shark.com

And though he might now be in his sixties, he continues to 'Attack Life' and is carving out a new niche for himself behind the microphone as a commentator for FOX Sports.

To mark Norman's milestone birthday, we’ve gathered ten of the best photographs from his exceptional golfing career.
