Talking about the event in Brazil, Norris said: “I don’t know if I’m allowed or not. But sure, Rickie Fowler. A good guy. I watched all of the guys and Rickie is kind of a bit more back on form lately, compared to where he was at the beginning of the year and last couple of years. 

“I’m excited. It’s going to be the first live event for Netflix, which is a cool thing to be part of. Nice course and everything. And yeah, I don’t know, like how the whole event is going to work but I’m sure it’s going to be good, fun.”

Carlos Sainz and Justin Thomas

Sainz will play alongside former world number one, Justin Thomas.

Thomas spent five weeks at the top of the rankings in 2018.
