Claret Jug from Greg Norman’s 1986 Open win up for auction

It looks like Greg Norman’s Colorado home isn’t the only thing of value tied to the Shark that’s been put on the market of late.

After learning that Norman had listed his 11,900-acre Colorado ranch, called Seven Lakes, for $40 million, now comes word that a Claret Jug from Norman’s 1986 win at The Open Championship is also available for those willing to dig into their pocketbooks.

The jug, which was likely created for another member of Norman’s entourage since players are allowed to have more than one made, was selling for just over $61,000 as of Friday evening. The auction closes on Saturday night at 7 p.m. ET.

According to Bob Zafian of Golden Age Golf Auctions, these things do come through from time to time.

This specific Claret Jug was auctioned through Zafian’s group back in 2018 for over $76,000 and he expects the piece to get closer to $85,000 this time through.

“But you just don’t know,” Zafian said. “Things things just don’t come up too often and sometimes, they take off.”

In terms of Norman’s home, the 13,907 square-foot home, located in Meeker, Colorado, sits next to the White River, one of the largest elk and deer migrations in the Rocky Mountains.
