In 1976, a young Englishman made his fi rst appearance on golf’s professional tour circuit at the age of just 19. A little over three decades later, following a career that has included over 40 tournament victories, six Major wins and a record 11 Ryder Cup appearances, Nick Faldo is today recognised as the most successful golfer that Britain has ever produced.
Through the creation of his company Faldo Enterprises, Faldo has also become a prolific success away from the course and is currently more involved with the business of golf than ever before. The list of companies and initiatives already under the Faldo golf umbrella include: his world-renowned golf course design company, Faldo Design, currently involved with 35 projects on six continents; the Faldo Series, one of the premiere tournaments for aspiring young golfers in both Europe and Asia; the Faldo Collection of clothing,
Nick’s new range of golf apparel; and a number of other projects in which Faldo plays an active role. Faldo has also been causing a stir on the airwaves, rather than fairways, having launched a new career as a television commentator.
Faldo’s natural, insightful presence in the commentary booth has resulted in lead analyst positions for two of the principal American broadcasters of PGA Tour golf – CBS and the Golf Channel. Faldo captained the European Ryder Cup team in 2008.
