Who is Australia’s greatest ever golfer – male or female? Those who measure greatness by the number of major wins will say Karrie “Spider” Webb (7 wins) is Australia’s greatest golfer followed by the legendary Peter “Thommo” Thomson (5) and Greg “The Shark” Norman. There are many firmly in the Webb camp. They believe the honour should be judged on major victories alone.
However, there are strong arguments in favour of the Thomson and iconic and charismatic Norman.

DON’T be surprised if a player from outside the top-30 or top-40 in the world rankings wins US PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in New York from August 8-11. Predicting the winner of golf’s fourth major has always been a challenge – more so, perhaps, than the other majors.
Back in 1983 when a young blond-haired Peter Fowler won the Australian Open and set out on an international career, he probably figured 30 years later he would be sitting in front of the fireplace wearing slippers and telling his grandkids how good he once was.
