It wasn’t much of a Merry Christmas for the Norman clan.
Greg Norman posted a photo to Instagram from a hospital bed during Christmas Day, and his son, Greg Norman, Jr., posted a photo saying that he and his fiancee have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
The elder Norman, a two-time Open champion, had said on Christmas Eve he was in quarantine, suffering from symptoms that were consistent with COVID. Norman lives in Jupiter, Florida.
“I just got off the phone with my doctor and even though I had a test on Tuesday and the results came back yesterday (Wednesday), which was negative, I am exhibiting mild symptoms of potentially COVID, not too sure. I feel very flu-like, I have mild fever, I have cough, I have aches and pains, I have a mild headache, so I am in self-quarantine,” Norman said on Thursday. “I don’t want to jeopardize affecting any of my friends or loved ones around me.”
But on Friday, he posted the following message on Instagram:
“This sums it all up. My Christmas Day. On behalf of millions, f— CoVid. This get this s— behind us never to experience it again.”
Norman had competed in the PNC Championship last weekend with his son, Greg Jr., and the duo finished in the top 10, but the younger Norman also posted on Christmas Day, saying he and his fiancee had both tested positive, even though their health was improving.
He added: “Michelle and I unfortunately are wrapping up the year with a positive diagnosis of COVID. YA. No Xmas with the family :/”
Greg Norman Jr. and Michelle Thomson are scheduled to get married on March 6, 2021.
