ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the threat made by golfer Greg Norman to sue the Professional Golfers' Association Tour if it failed to provide him its financial documents and meeting minutes from 1993 to 2006. Norman argues that golfers has the right to demand such documents to know how decisions are made. Edward Moorhouse, COO of the league, said that meeting minutes are not publicly distributed due to its confidentiality. Other reasons behind the demand of Norman for the documents is his dispute with the tour's commissioner Timothy Finchem.
