La Quinta, Calif -

World Golf Hall of Famer and two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman has been forced to withdraw from the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation due to a knee injury. 

Norman has been experiencing right knee recurrent effusions to cartilage injuries and is scheduled to meet with Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. James Bradley of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center early next week. 

“Early next week, I will be evaluating Greg’s right knee to determine the extent of a persistent, ongoing injury and establish an appropriate treatment plan,” Dr. Bradley said.

“I was very excited about competing in the Humana Challenge and supporting the Clinton Foundation and my corporate partners, and I’m extremely disappointed that my condition has forced me to withdraw from the event,” Norman said.

“Of course we are disappointed that Greg is not able to join us for the tournament this year,” said Bob Marra, Executive Director and CEO of the Humana Challenge. “Our thoughts are with Greg as he works through this injury and we wish him a full and speedy recovery.”

Norman last played in the Humana Challenge in 2012 when he was paired with President Bill Clinton.
