(Newser) – The pairing of sports legends Greg Norman and Chris Evert is on the rocks, with the couple—both 54—announcing today they’ve separated after 15 months of marriage. If a divorce is in the works, they didn’t say. The announcement comes ahead of an international golf competition for which Norman is a captain, and during which the absence of tennis queen Evert would surely have drawn notice, the AP observes.
