GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA: Sir Nicholas Alexander Faldo, aka Nick Faldo, is someone who doesn't need an introduction, simply because of the accolades he has achieved over the years on the golf course. After his golfing days, he became a golf analyst and a CBS broadcaster for almost 16 years. On Sunday, August 7, after the final round of the Wyndham Championship, the golf legend decided to call it quits and passed the torch in a rather emotional way.

When his co-broadcasters asked him for his final thoughts on his career, the 65-year-old golf legend teared up and said "I blew it." He took a long pause to gather himself together, continuing, "I was in a boat in Ireland, and they gave me a call and said, ‘How would you like to sit next to Jim Nantz ?’ and I literally fell out the boat, I really did. That was 2006, and here we are 16 years later." The retired professional golfer and television commentator got a plaque on the Wall of Fame in Greensboro this Sunday, August 7. Faldo went on to thank his co-commentators - Nantz (host of Superbowl LV in 2021 alongside Tony Romo), Ian Baker-Finch, and Frank Nobilo calling them "brothers."

Faldo is a living legend who has been a nightmare to many of his rival players. The most surprising feat that he has achieved is being ranked No. 1 on the 'Official World Golf Ranking' for a total of whopping 97 weeks, establishing unparallel competition. His catalog consists of 41 professional wins that include 30 victories on the European Tour and 6 major championships, which are 3 Open Championships (1987, 1990, 1992) and 3 Masters (1989, 1990, 1996). Faldo continued, "Thanks to all the crew. As I affectionately and respectfully call you the workers, they put the pictures out, we do the rattling, we have an easy job. Thank you all." Trevor Immelman is his replacement. Golf on CBS posted, "Cheers to a remarkable career, Sir Nick Faldo We will miss you, @NickFaldo006." From being a critically acclaimed pro golfer to being a CBS broadcaster and old analyst for nearly 2 decades, how much is his net worth?
