MELBOURNE, Australia -- Greg Norman said he wouldn't hesitate to send Adam Scott against Tiger Woods this week at The Presidents Cup.
"If it happens, it happens, it's not going to be premeditated," Norman told the media after completing his final round at the Australian Open on Sunday. "I talked to Adam about it, asked him if it works out that way, do you have a problem, and he said, 'No, not at all.'"
"He might end up playing with him every day, who knows. I'd expect the two of them to meet up face to face from Thursday onward."
Norman was referring as much to Woods and his former caddy, Steve Williams, as to the American and Scott. Woods and Williams, who was on the bag for 13 of Woods’ 14 majors but now caddies for Scott, have been at odds since the two parted ways acrimoniously in July.
Norman, who captained the International Team in a losing effort two years ago at Harding Park, also said he planned to be more assertive this week.
"At the end of the day, I am going to say, `This is who you are going to play,'" he said. "I'm going to be a little bit more assertive, more of a captain instead of seeking advice."
