For the last 16 years, six-time major winner Nick Faldo has been a staple of CBS Sports’ coverage of the PGA Tour. But at the end of this season, Sir Nick will be walking away from the TV tower to tackle retirement.

Faldo announced his retirement Tuesday via his social media platforms. The 64-year-old says he plans to focus on other ventures such as his golf course design firm, the Faldo Series, which specializes in junior golf, and spending time with his wife Lindsay on their new farm in Montana.

Nick Faldo said he will finish out the CBS tour stops for the rest of this season, so expect to hear the Englishman commentating this week’s Traveler’s Championship at TPC River Highlands.

Faldo’s final event in the 18th tower will come at the event he made his PGA Tour debut at; the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina beginning Aug. 4.

Following the Wyndham championship, NBC Sports will produce the remainder of the 2021-22 FedEx Cup season, with CBS returning to produce the Farmers Insurance Open in LaJolla, California.

2008 Master’s champion Trevor Immelman will join lead commentator Jim Nantz in the booth. The South African has been part of CBS’s golf coverage since 2019 and served as a lead analyst with Golf Channel and Turner Sports’ “The Match.”
