He was praised for his gracious handling of his excruciating loss at the 1996 Masters to Nick Faldo, but it didn't last. Fellow Aussie Jack Newton was among those who thought success changed Norman. "I think he needs a few mates in his life," Newton said in 2008. "I feel that he's going to end up a lonely man with no friends." That was around the time that Norman married the former tennis star Chris Evert after a messy divorce from his longtime wife, Laura Andrassy. The jilted Andrassy got a reported $105 million settlement and dismissively said of Norman and Evert that she had "no wishes for them except to say they deserve each other." Norman and Evert have since split.
