Nick Faldo won the 1990 British Open at St. Andrews. He got quite the ovation in his final British Open there on Friday. Faldo followed up his 80 on Thursday with a 71 on Friday that included a birdie at the Road Hole.
“I made three at 17!” screamed Faldo to ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi after his round. “That was my thank you, St. Andrews.”
Then he tossed on the sweater he wore to win the 1987 British Open and walked up No. 18 to thunderous applause.
