The China Golf Association on Friday appointed Norman the exclusive advisory coach of its national golf team to get ready for the 2016 Games in Brazil and improve China’s global standing in golf beyond the Olympics.
Norman, a two-time British Open champion and former No. 1 player in the world, will development a comprehensive plan of instruction, nutrition, mental training and course management, along with providing his own tournament experience.
He will appoint two assistant coaches to work with the China Golf Association staff. Norman will make regular visits to the national team’s training facility in Nanshan leading up to the 2016 Olympics.
“I’ve always advocated for the growth and accessibility of the game and look forward to working with the CGS to bring my experience and longtime support of junior golf to China,” Norman said. “My role is not only to help prepare the China national team for international competition, but to also teach social skills, etiquette, honesty and self-confidence in giving young Chinese golfers a pathway to their future as adults.”
