Golf and Tennis Aren't a Match

I was shocked to read Greg Norman and Chris Evert have already separated after a year of marriage. When seeing them in interviews, you would have thought they were inseparable. Each brought in fortunes, along with respective prenuptial agreements, so I'm sure a divorce will be very simple procedure. Maybe that's the problem, it's too easy to walk away. Perhaps, not to surprising when it's her third and his second.

It's too bad. They were an attractive couple in terms of looks and athletic star-power. I hope this won't interfere with Greg's duties as Captain of the International Team at the President's Cup.

I don't get it. Why would this interfere with Norman's President's Cup duties?

Hi Ares,

I'm not saying that it will interfere.

It may create for him though a distraction with the media who might question him more about his separation, reasons for it, etc. than the competition.

He may also be distracted by what's going on in his personal life. Although athletes are professionals, we've heard about how family or personal issues interfere with their games. Albeit, Norman isn't playing, but he can still be distracted...he's human.

I hope isn't distracted and he can give all he can as Captain of the International Team. I look forward to watching an exciting President's Cup.
