‘Damn my ageless body!’ Greg Norman, 65, breaks his silence on THAT beach photo – as he teases ‘sexy jester’ role in Seven’s new mini golf show Holey Moley
Greg Norman has finally revealed what he really thinks of his famous shirtless beach photo that went viral in November.
The golfing legend, 56, sparked a social media frenzy when he uploaded a photo to Instagram of himself walking his dog in Florida – with the shape of his manhood clearly visible beneath the folds of his blue boardshorts.
Speaking to the Herald Sun on Sunday, Greg said he found the situation ‘hilarious’.
‘It was quite a bit of fun’: Greg Norman, 65, (pictured) has admitted he found the social media frenzy surrounding his naughty beach photo last November was ‘hilarious’, telling the Herald Sun ‘it was quite a bit of fun’
‘I was just out walking my dog and it is what it is,’ he laughed.
‘I think some of the comments were hilarious, and I don’t normally read the comments, so it was quite a bit of fun.’
Elsewhere in his interview, Greg discussed his role as the ‘sexy jester’ in Seven’s upcoming mini golf show Holey Moley.
Almost broke the Internet: In November, the Australian sporting star shared this photo to Instagram of himself walking along the beach on Florida’s Jupiter Island with his dog
Whoops! However, it wasn’t long before fans noticed that the shape of his manhood was clearly visible beneath the folds of his blue board shorts
Proving he’s not afraid to poke fun at himself, Greg revealed that he’d originally planned to dress in a shark costume as part of a challenge – a playful homage to his nickname ‘Shark’.
The challenge saw the mini golfers attempt to sink a hole surrounded by water.
Greg was supposed to patrol the area dressed as a shark, while golfers jumped on his back to get across the water.
‘Damn this ageless body!’ Greg also discussed a scene that was scrapped from Seven’s upcoming mini golf show Holey Moley, revealing he was initially meant to dress as a shark while golfers jumped on his back. However, things went awry due to his ‘silky smooth skin’

Unfortunately, the idea was scrapped as the golfers kept falling off.
‘We did some tests and unfortunately my skin is so silky smooth everyone kept slipping off. So we had to go with a fake shark instead. Damn this ageless body!’ he joked.
Greg is considered one of the greatest golfers of all time, having spent 333 weeks as the world’s No. 1 in the 1980s.
Since stepping away from professional golf, Norman has built a reputation as a top tier course designer – a job that has earned him millions.
