West Palm Beach, Florida, United States: ‘The Search for Greg Norman’s Biggest Fan’ has been launched with the grand prize winner receiving a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and play golf with Norman.
Having received countless letters, heartfelt messages and encounters with fans throughout the years, explaining how Norman has touched their lives, the contest seeks to find the fan with the most impactful story and provide them with the opportunity to connect with the Australian golf legend directly.
“Yesterday was my birthday and upon reflection of 65 years of life and a 40-plus year career in golf, one of the most important things in my life have been my fans. They have supported me during my biggest achievements and lifted me up in defeat. Now it’s my turn to give back,” said Norman. “This is the first time I have ever done anything like this, and I am very much looking forward to hearing from everyone and ultimately, meeting my ‘biggest fan’!”
Over the next two weeks, the Greg Norman Company will be conducting a worldwide search (open to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico and Australia) accepting submissions one of two ways:
- Enter via Shark.com: visit www.shark.com/biggestfan and submit an essay on why you are Greg’s biggest fan (in 7,500 characters or less).
- Enter via Social Media: post a video (two minutes or less in length) to your personal social media page (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter) that includes the hashtag #GregNormanBiggestFan in the copy of the post. The profile must be public and you must tag @sharkgregnorman and follow Greg’s page on the corresponding platform (ie. if you post on Facebook, you must follow Greg Norman Company Facebook page).
The contest will run until February 25, after which the top three submissions will be selected by Norman and his committee and featured on Shark.com. Norman’s fan community will then be encouraged to vote for their pick for biggest fan, who will ultimately win the trip of a lifetime. Voting period will run from March 2-6 and the winner will be announced publicly on March 10.
In addition to roundtrip airfare, accommodation and a meet-and-greet, the Grand Prize winner will also receive a full-set of Cobra Golf clubs, a new wardrobe provided by Greg Norman Collection, a Garmin rangefinder and more.
