Greg Norman has had surgery on his left shoulder for the second time and hopes to get back to his limited golf schedule by July.

Norman had arthroscopic surgery Monday at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, mainly to repair a torn labrum. The two-time British Open champion had surgery on the same shoulder in 1998, although his doctors said they were not related.

Norman also had surgery on his right shoulder in 2009.

The Shark says he has known for six months that he would need surgery. He says with aggressive rehabilitation, he hopes to play able to compete toward the end of July.

Norman is to return home to south Florida on Tuesday to start physical therapy.
