Golf Legend Greg Norman Hospitalized with Covid-19

Greg Norman, 65 year old Australian Golf Legends Contracts Covid-19.

On Saturday Dec 19, 2020 Greg Norman and his son Greg Norman Jr, participated in the Father-Son PNC Championship Golf Tournament in Orlando, FL.    You had to be tested with Negative results prior to being allowed to play, according to tournament rules.

After the tournament was over, on Tuesday, Dec 22, 2020 Norman was tested again.  Test results came back Wednesday Dec 23rd as Negative.  However, Thursday, Christmas Eve 2020, Norman started getting flu-like symptoms.  As the day progressed and the symptoms got worst, Norman called his physician who recommended he go to the hospital.

On Friday, Christmas day, Dec 25th, Greg Norman found himself in a hospital bed at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center in Palm Beach, FL

Pictured here to the right is a picture of Greg Norman in the hospital that he posted on his Instagram Account.  Although Norman has always been a fit man and had what he considered a high tolerance for pain, he wrote on his Instagram ” this virus kicked the crap out of me like nothing I have ever experienced before.”

“Muscle and joint pain on another level. Headaches that feel like a chisel going through your head scraping little bits off each time, fever, muscles that just did not want to work like yesterday walking my dog Apollo my quads and hip flexors just did not want to work due to fatigue.

“Then my taste failed where beer tastes bad and wine the same. And finally at times struggling with memory of names and things. Then there is irritation.”

“So please take care. And for those doubters out there, do not judge or cast unwarranted comments and opinions I would not want anyone, even you, to experience this hideous virus,” he said.

“So I ask, do what is right, not just for you, but your family, friends, co-workers and other people around. I am luckier than most and for that I am thankful and blessed. Also the world is blessed and science has acted and performed like never before in getting a vaccine/s for all to eventually receive. Thank you to those people. We need to get our world back in healthy harmony so we can get healthy economically and prosperously with millions and millions people getting their lives back.

“God bless those infected and who may fall unwittingly to this virus. My prayers and thoughts go out to you all. Once out of here today back to quarantine.”

Greg Norman was released from the hospital on Sunday, Dec 27th and sent back home to quarentine.  On Monday the 28th, Norman was back in the hospital getting Antibody Infusions.

Toughest Grand Strand Courses

Have you ever wondered which Myrtle Beach golf course presents the biggest challenge to your personal game? Local golfers were asked this question and they answered. Barefoot Resort & Golf’s Dave Genevro, Seaside Golf Vacations’ Mark Rosenberg, Chase McGraw of Coastal Golfaway, Ryan Hart of Golf Tourism Solutions, and Scott Thrailkill of MyrtleBeachGolf.com each weigh in on the one area design that pushes their game to the limit.

Dave Genevro:
This week’s question for the Play Golf Myrtle Beach Ambassadors is, which Grand Strand golf course is the most challenging to your personal game? My vote goes to The Dunes Golf & Beach Club, a wonderful design with great conditions all the time. And the challenge for me not playing much golf anymore is the greens, they’re firm and fast, and I have a tendency to quit going through the putts because of the speed. And I’m missing on the short side all the time, leading to three-putts during my round. Great course. Steve Hamilton and his staff, and the maintenance staff do a wonderful job on a daily basis. If you’ve never played the track, try it out. You won’t be disappointed.

 

 

Mark Rosenberg:The one that is most challenging for me is Prestwick Country Club. It requires me to hit a lot of long precision irons into those greens, and that’s not my strong suit. They could put the pins in some tricky positions because of the undulations, and the greens are fast. If you’re  in Myrtle Beach, test your game at Prestwick Country Club. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll love it. See you here soon!

 

 

Chase McGraw:
I’m a younger guy. I hit it a little ways and I can hit it somewhat straight, but definitely the hardest part for me is putting. And The Heritage Club, with their huge, huge greens, makes it very difficult. You can hit it on one front of the green and have a mile to the back of those greens, and I just end up three-putting a bunch. It’s a beautiful golf course, don’t get me wrong. And I actually love it. It’s been in my top 10 in Myrtle Beach. But for me personally, those greens make that golf course so difficult day in and day out, because they keep them in excellent condition, they’re super-fast with a lot of undulation. And it’s just, it is fun, but it is a tough golf course. So for me, I would say Heritage Club is probably the toughest for my game personally.

 

Ryan Hart:
Well, I’m sure if you ask that question to a bunch of different people, you’ll get a bunch of different answers. But for me, it’s quick, it’s easy, it’s not really comparable to me: Pawleys Plantation. Outside of being one of the best courses in the area, for me it’s by far the toughest. It’schallenging off the tee in the fact that it has length. It’s extremely narrow, it’s one of the more narrow courses on the beach. It’s a Nicklaus design. The greens are extremely small. When you miss the green, after it being really small, it’s tough to get up and down. They’ve got deep bunkers.  And it’s cool that the front nine and the back nine are completely different, because you get that inland look and feel on the front nine, then you go to the back nine, you’re out there on the marsh hitting balls on the island greens in the wind and stuff like that. So yeah, for me, the most challenging course along the Grand Strand is Pawleys Plantation.

 

Scott Thrailkill:

Well, surprisingly enough, I’ve played all the hard ones: True Blue, Dunes Club. Yes, they give me my struggle. One surprising one is Willbrook Plantation Golf Club, located just a half a mile away from the resort. I don’t know what it is about the golf course: 18 beautiful holes, they’ve got bunkers, they’ve got water, they’ve got the nice mossy oak trees. But for some reason, personally, I just cannot get over this golf course. I can’t. I play so many good holes, but I’ve got to have my four or five bad ones that leave me coming back for more. So, play Willbrook Plantation, be surprised like I am, but hopefully, your scores are much better!

Come Discover Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club

PAWLEYS ISLAND, SC

Picturesque Low Country Charm…. The true feel of the South.

Pawleys Island and its surrounding areas along the Grand Strand’s southern shores are well known for their Lowcountry charm, sweeping vistas of salt marshland, warm hospitality and seasonably warm weather for enjoying the outdoors on a year-round basis.

Founders Club at Pawleys Island contributes greatly to this region’s charm, with a rich local history going back more than five decades as one of the first four golf courses to come to life in the Myrtle Beach area.

As with most classic designs, Founders Club at Pawleys Island has evolve over the years, including a 2008 redesign and renovation by noted golf course architect Thomas Walker. His efforts brought back natural sandy areas throughout the course that are indigenous to the Southeast coastal region, helping to frame beautiful visuals against a dramatic backdrop of tall, long-leaf pines and centuries-old oaks.

Dramatic shadowing throughout this design is produced by strategic mounding amid the property’s natural setting, and it’s at its most notable during early-morning and late-afternoon rounds. Nowhere at Founders Club is this more evident than at Holes No. 14 and 15. The 14th plays as a dogleg right that produces a steady climb from the fairway to an elevated, narrow green protected by surrounding sandy waste area. The tee shot at No. 15 must steer clear of a long, encroaching finger bunker that longer players may try to carry for a short-iron approach to a small green.

Founders Club at Pawleys Island was touted by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association as its 2011 Golf Course of the Year, and provides a memorable coastal-feel playing experience. Come see it for yourself, in a short drive just 15 minutes south of Myrtle Beach in Pawleys Island, South Carolina!

PGA Awards Dustin Johnson’s Coach, Allen Terrell of Myrtle Beach The 2020 Palmer Maples Teacher of the Year Award.

According to Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, The Carolinas PGA Section of the Professional Golfers’ Association has honored Allen Terrell, PGA, director of coaching at the Dustin Johnson Golf School, with its 2020 Palmer Maples Teacher of the Year Award.

This Teacher of the Year Award goes to a PGA Professional who has performed outstanding service as a golf instructor, with particular emphasis placed on the honoree’s performance over the past five years.  Among the Carolinas PGA Section’s criteria for which Terrell’s  work was honored includes his impact on teaching and golf instruction in the Section, involvement in junior golf activities at the Dustin Johnson Golf School and the community, and innovative contributions to golf instruction.

Allen Terrell was very honored and when asked how he felt about receiving such an award, Terrell said  “Our section has so many great instructors, and it is quite humbling to be associated with such an incredible list of past recipients.”

Since 2004, Terrell has coached the current top-ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Ranking, Dustin Johnson, who capped his 2020 FedEx Cup Championship and 2020 PGA TOUR Player of the Year honors by winning his second career major last month at The Masters.

Allen Terrell was the golf coach at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina, in the early 2000s when he recruited a new player to his team, Dustin Johnson. The long-hitting Johnson played for CCU from 2004-07, turning pro after graduating. In 2013, after 14 years, Terrell left CCU to continue working with Johnson and devote himself to the new Dustin Johnson Golf Schools and other teaching opportunities.

This golf school now holds classes for all ages from children to retiree’s.

The club in your hand,  the fairway beneath your feet,  beautiful greens as far as you can see,  and that hole in one you have always dreamed of?  After a year like this,  you deserve it!

Myrtle Beach is calling for you….

 

Book your tee time now…  come on down and whack that ball like there is no tomorrow!  Work out all those frustrations that have been building up inside you…  then go on in to the club house, have a drink with a buddy, take a deep breath and say….

“That is just what I needed!”
