GREG NORMAN shares the lead after the first round of the US Senior Open but we hardly need remind you, don’t put your house on him just yet.

He’s gotta win one soon you’d think, but apparently tent dwelling isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

The Shark shot a fine six under 66 at a very receptive Crooked Stick course in Carmel, Indiana along with Americans Joey Sindelar, Dan Forsman and amateur Tim Jackson. LIVE LEADERBOARD
