Greg Norman out of US Champions Tour 2012 Hawaii Championship

Norman out of Champions Tour event

HAWAIIAN media are reporting Greg Norman has withdrawn from the inaugural Pacific Links Hawaii Championship.

No official Champions Tour statement has been made (at time of posting) but local media say Norman withdrew to deliver the eulogy for the wife of professional golfer Raymond Floyd, who died of cancer last week.

Norman was on the island and was part of the pre-tournament activities but his name no longer appears on the official starting list or the leaderboard so it’s pretty safe to assume the Australian golfer is out of the event.

Also apparently missing from the starting lists is the previously announced participant Fred Couples, so on the eve of the event we’re not entirely sure who will be teeing off at the Kapolei Golf Course on the island of Oahu.

Still appearing on the tee time lists and leaderboard is a quality field headed by Charles Schwab Cup points leader Tom Lehman and including Australia’s now sole representative Peter Senior.

The Pacific Links Hawaii Championship is being telecast live in Australia on Fox Sports beginning Saturday 9.30am – 12 midday.
