Greg Norman and Brad Faxon are now Florida neighbors

Brad Faxon has a new neighbor. And a former fellow TV analyst.

Faxon and his wife Dory, a real estate agent, live in the Old Palm Golf Club community in Palm Beach Gardens where World Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman reportedly just bought a new home. Both Faxon and Norman were part of FOX’s golf coverage.

Norman and his wife, Kiki, sold Tranquility, their eight-acre estate on Jupiter Island, for $55.1 million on April 7.  The buyer reportedly is the family of Les Wexner, chairman emeritus of L Brands, owner of Victoria’s Secret.

“I know which house he bought, the Lashingers’ house. I read what he paid for it ($12.2 million) — I never know if that’s true,” said Faxon at the Chubb Classic presented by SERVPRO at Tiburón Golf Club, where Norman designed both courses.

Norman also is the tournament founder and host of the QBE Shootout, the PGA Tour team event played at Tiburón since 2001. This is the first year the Black Course has hosted the PGA Tour Champions tournament. The Shootout and the CME Group Tour Championship on the LPGA tour have both been played on the facility’s Gold Course.

Old Palm’s golf course was designed by Raymond Floyd, and has had several tour pros call it home at some point. Ernie Els was the most recent to leave.

“When we moved down, Ian Baker-Finch lived there, Louis (Oosthuizen), Charl (Schwartzel), Branden Grace, Shane Lowry’s renting in there,” Faxon said. “(Lee) Westwood lived there.”

Rory McIlroy also owned a home there, but reportedly bought Els’ home at The Bear’s Club.

And Faxon said Els has sold his place and moved near Seminole Golf Club.

“Now it’s like everything in Florida is sold out,” he said. “There’s no places left anywhere. It’s crazy.”

Norman’s new 11,837-square-foot house sits on two acres and features six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and two half-baths. The property also has a tennis court, guest house and a massive resort-style pool with a swim-up bar.

Tiger Woods’ ex-wife,  Elin Nordegren, paid $9.4 million for a home there in September.

Norman has reportedly wanted to return to Australia after battling COVID-19 late last year. Norman also sold his Seven Lakes ranch in Colorado for $52 million in March.
