‘Shark’ con­firms bridge folk­lore

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

LIFE’S of­ten a case of who you know, as US-based Aussie busi­ness­man An­drew Liveris (pic­tured) showed the other day at the Royal Queens­land golf course in Bris­bane.

An­drew, who hol­i­days reg­u­larly on the Gold Coast and re­tires in July as chair­man of US gi­ant DowDupont, was play­ing with son Nick and Mer­maid Beach dweller Terry Jack­man.

The course sits be­low the gi­ant struc­ture that is the Gate­way bridge.

The trio were told that Royal Bris­bane folk­lore had it that golf­ing great Greg Nor­man had smashed a ball right over the bridge us­ing a five­iron.

An­drew ap­par­ently said “Just a mo­ment”, emailed Nor­man, and posed a ques­tion.

Ten min­utes later a re­ply came back, com­plete with a smil­ing emoji, ad­vis­ing An­drew that the mat­ter no longer was folk­lore – Nor­man did hit a five-iron over the bridge.
