Norman and Evert separate after 15 months of marriage, but no talk of divorce......

Golf star, and businessman Greg Norman and his second wife and winner of 18 tenns grand slam titles Chris Evert have separated after just 15 months of marriage.

Norman, also known as the Great White Shark engaged to the British Evert in December 2007 and the sporting couple were married in the Bahamas in a heavily secured and private wedding, June last year. American Evert and Norman, both 54, said on Friday that they had split, but pledged to remain friends.

The announcement came just three days before Norman captains the International team at the Presidents Cup in San Francisco, where wives usually take on a visible role.

Evert, recently accompanied Norman at the British Open in July, and just three weeks ago the couple were seen together at the US Open tennis tournament in New York.

Neither Norman, who has won two British Opens, nor Evert, said whether they planned to divorce.

In a statement, the couple said: �We will remain friends and supportive of one another�s family.�

They requested privacy for themselves and their families.
