A legendary golfer is reportedly considering a return from retirement to play at The Open later this summer.

According to a report, Greg Norman is considering a return from retirement to play in the major tournament in July.

Sky Sports first reported the news:

The 67-year-old, who won The Open in 1986 and 1993, last played professionally 10 years ago but is setting his sights on appearing at the 150th Open when it begins on July 10.

The Australian no longer qualifies for automatic entry as a former champion and, as a result, would have to earn his spot through qualifying unless he is granted an exemption by organisers.

That would be something.

Norman, now 67, last played professionally 10 years ago.

He's hoping to get a special exemption to play in The Open in July. It would be pretty fun to watch, that's for sure.
