Sports Psychology: Why Did Greg Norman Do So Well At The British Open?

   Greg Norman did not win The British Open, but he played very well.  Why?

   In my view, his relationship with Chris Everett had something to do with his success.

     When I counsel athletes, I always assess their relationships with spouses, parents, coaches, teammates, competitors and friends.

      A fulfilling and close love relationship can enhance one’s performance on the course, on the field or on the court.

         In addition, Norman appears to be at a very comfortable and peaceful place in his life.  This, too, can allow a person to play and perform to their potential.
