Brangelina, make room for Sharkvert. Greg Norman and Chris Evert, the most talked-about sports couple since Nancy Lopez and New York Mets infielder Ray Knight (perhaps you remember them as “Kni-Lo”), looked like a couple of love-struck teens at the first round of the Asian Open yesterday. This from Agence France-Presse:
Evert, 52, clapped and cheered his three birdies, gave him many supportive pats on the back throughout the round and the pair briefly walked some fairways holding hands. Norman, 53, occasionally turned to her and smiled after a good shot, and ensured she did not get thirsty in the warm weather by digging into the players’ drink stores and passing her a bottle of water. American Evert looked every inch the celebrity in a tight black singlet and black tracksuit pants, while carrying a designer handbag and watching Norman through dark sunglasses. Ooh, a singlet! P.S. Norman shot one-under.
