Greg Norman is very thankful for pain pills following his latest shoulder surgery

October 26, 2015

On Monday, Greg Norman took to Instagram again to announce he'd undergone successful surgery. But this time, we're happy to report his injury didn't involve a chainsaw accident.

Norman, 60, is the lead analyst for Fox's coverage of the U.S. Open. Judging by his recovery timetable, he should be able to get plenty of his own golf in before heading to Oakmont -- provided he stays away from outdoor power tools.
