Sir Nick

Six-time major tournament victor, and winner of 43 tournaments worldwide, Nick Faldo is enjoying his new role as a TV commentator
Jeff Williams
From the Print Edition:
George Lopez, January/February 2010

(continued from page 4)

There is just so much going on, and he's now just so far removed from the championship years. He remembers the British Open in 1999 at Carnoustie when he failed to make the cut. "It was a black moment, dark," he says. "I couldn't do what I used to do. It couldn't come to me. At some point it occurred to me that I have to move on, that I could not be what I was."
So here he is-television commentator, designer, businessman, Daddy, Sir Nick. And without his Iron Chest we get to see more of him than we ever did, get to know him more than he ever allowed. Still an imposing man. Still an imposing personality. No longer the monolith.

Jeff Williams is a Cigar Aficionado contributing editor.
