Legendary professional golfer Greg Norman inadvertently started a social media firestorm on Monday with a seemingly innocent photo. The golfer took to Instagram yesterday to post a picture of himself and his dog walking along the beach.
The 65-year-old Norman appears to be in tip-top shape at his age with sculpted abs that would make a 20-year-old jealous. It was, however, a different part of Norman’s anatomy that drew the most attention from the beach photo.
“A man and his dog on a Sunday,” Norman writes in the photo. Though seemingly an innocent enough photo of the two enjoying the beach, fans were quick to point out the “x-rated” details of the photo.

In a 2018 interview, Norman says he stays in shape by working out six days a week in a gym he built in his home, according to Yahoo Sports.
“I work out a minimum of five days a week, sometimes six days, and always take at least one day off,” Norman says. “I have a full gym at my house, and I built it. It’s got a cardio room, a full weight room, free weights, all that stuff.”
Known as the “Shark” on the golf course, Norman tells Yahoo that he takes pride in staying in shape at his advanced age.
“At the end of the day, I do enjoy keeping fit at my age,” he says proudly. “I don’t have any ego about me, but I do love having a fit life.”
