Golf is as much a religion to many men in Australia as it is anywhere else. They disappear in a weekly pilgrimage to their local courses each weekend to show their reverence, reflect, pray and perhaps hurl the odd club into the water hazard or abuse the ball. Courses litter the Australian landscape like divots in the fairways, and the warm, sunny climate leaves few of them empty. The best-known Australian golfer is Greg Norman, winner of two British Opens and widely considered among the world´s best players. For a long while, he held the No. 1 world ranking. Australian Karrie Webb has perched herself atop the women´s world rankings.
