Sir Nick Faldo
By Kickntrue on 11/11/09
Nick Faldo was knighted earlier today by Queen Elizabeth. Rise now, Sir Nick Faldo... PS, you make great wine. No, seriously, I was in the spirits store last week and saw a bottle of Nick Faldo wine and just had to buy it. You should know- I'm not wine connoisseur (FAR FROM IT, but I am smart enough to know wine is the best buzz you can have, and buzz it doth provided. I thank ye, Sir Faldo.
What was I talking about? Oh yah- knighthood. This would have to be one of the coolest things in the world, and us Americans have no equivalent whatsoever. Stupid sexy lack of a constitutional monarch.
I'm a little too young to know Faldo as a great golfer- to me his legend will probably grow as a great announcer, but looking back at some of the stuff he accomplished is pretty amazing. Six major championships puts him in pretty elite company in the sport and he did most of his damage in one glorious 9 year stretch.

When he's having a bad day, does he become surly Nick Faldo?
Yay for Sir Nick.
I remember watching him play when I was but a lad, and he is second only to the great Peter Alliss in the commentary box.
