Summary Introduced by Adam ScottIncludes interviews with President Bill Clinton, Jack Nicklaus, Peter FitzSimons, Morgan-Leigh Norman (daughter), and Gregory Norman Junior (son) and third wife Kirsten in her first television interview.When Adam Scott became the first Australian ever to win the U.S. Masters golf tournament earlier this year, he immediately paid an emotional tribute to his mentor Greg Norman. Norman remains a world sporting icon and is considered by many to be Australia's greatest ever golfer. But his friend, President Bill Clinton, interviewed for Australian Story, says Greg was never universally 'embraced in a way that some great golfers are.'Greg Norman was also a trail blazer off the course, parlaying sporting success into a multi-millionaire dollar business empire built around his moniker, The Great White Shark.But the high visibility of his 'living brand' status, rebounded when he endured a very public and expensive break-up from his first wife, followed by a brief marriage to former world number one tennis player Chris Evert.Now married again, Norman says he is finally happy and in a very good place. 'I just don't want any drama anymore'.Over two parts this week and next, Australian Story examines the complex life and times of one of the country's most successful athletes
