I am so sorry to hear the passing of an Australian legend. There have been many individuals who have touched the game of golf, none more so than Peter Thomson in his era.

Australian golf was the benefactor of his five Open Championships which in turn paved the way for golfers like Bruce Devlin, David Graham, Ian Baker Finch, Jason Day, Adam Scott and myself. With his passing, so too has an era of golf. His life off the course deserves equal distinction, having transitioned to a scribe for The Age then politics, which is not something many golfers before or after him have accomplished.

He will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with Mary and his family.

– Greg Norman
