‘The size of that ego’: Golf world reacts to Greg Norman’s ‘narcissism’ after his final letter to Cameron Smith

Since LIV Golf launched its tour in June of this year, its CEO, Greg Norman, has become the target of trolls and haters online. They spare no opportunity to criticize and abuse the shark. Besides him, all LIV Golf defectors share the same fate. This includes the likes of Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, and Cameron Smith.

Golf fans are troll Greg Norman again

Cameron Smith recently won his second consecutive Greg Norman Medal. The medal is awarded to an Australian golfer who has excelled at the international level.

Norman took to Twitter to congratulate the world number three. He congratulated him on winning the medal twice in a row, and said, “Flawless performance this year. Australian Golf is proud to have you as a representative on the world stage.”

Norman, as was the recent trend, was trolled for his tweet. Fans kept calling him out saying he has a huge ego, and kept stating, “The epitome of narcissism”, and “Wow for the size of that ego!”

Despite the trolls, Cam certainly deserved the most prestigious golf award in Australia after the season in which he was awarded this year.

How has Cameron Smith fared this season?

Smith had the most amazing season this year. Had he not withdrawn to LIV golf, the Aussie might have had a chance to take the No. 1 spot in the world. In January of this year, he earned his first win of the season on the PGA Tour at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Then, Kam won the Players Championship, finishing 13-under-par and beating Anirban Lahiri by a stroke. He won again on tour, securing his first major tournament in St Andrews, Scotland. Smith played a no-bogey game to defeat Cameron Young by a stroke and win his first major. He earned a total of $10,107,897 on tour, nearly $1.5 million more than world number one Rory McIlroy.

In August, Smith jumped ship and joined the other side. There, too, he did well. Despite only playing four of the eight events, Cam still ranked 10th in the LIV rankings, earning a total of $7,378.50.

Does Cam regret his decision to join LIV Golf if he wasn’t approved for the World Ranking Points? Or will the money he earns offset his disappointment at not being ranked first? Only time will tell.
