MCILROY WANTS TO FOLLOW IN NORMAN’S FOOTSTEPS

0

SYDNEY: Rory McIlroy says he admires most things Australian, particularly Russell Crowe and Greg Norman, and would like nothing more than to get his hands on the Australian Open trophy this week. The Northern Irishman is playing the event at Royal Sydney from Thursday and revealed Australians figure highly in people he reveres, but admitted another Australian icon, Vegemite, was not to his taste. “Russell Crowe’s always been my favorite Australian actor and my favorite all-time Australian golfer is Greg Norman,” he said Tuesday. While the likes of Norman, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player have won the event in the past, McIlroy is gunning to be only the second European after England’s Lee Westwood to claim victory. He said Norman was an idol and winning in Australia would be a huge moment for him.
