Last year, Greg Norman delivered a performance fit for a Disney movie at the British Open. Call it Back Nine, in which an aging former champion puts together four improbable rounds to compete for the game's oldest trophy. This year, Nick Faldo may be reprising the role.Faldo, a three-time Open champion and current CBS broadcaster, will play at Turnberry in July, according to BBC Sport. The 51-year-old six-time major champion missed last year's Open for
the first time since 1975 as he was focused on the Ryder Cup captaincy.
He also turned down a Masters return in April because of
television commentary commitments, but will be competing at Turnberry
for the fourth time.
Faldo won the last of his three Opens at Muirfield in 1992. The
former world number one, who no longer competes regularly on tour, also
won at Muirfield in 1987 and triumphed at St Andrews in 1990.
Faldo won't have any announcing duties that week because ABC/ESPN broadcasts the Open.
