Sir Nick Faldo’s Masters-winning memories 

In advance of this week’s 87th Masters Tournament, the DP World Tour caught up with Sir Nick Faldo to reminisce about his rich history with the event.

The Englishman, who will later this year host the Betfred British Masters at The Belfry, is the only European player to have donned the famous Green Jacket on three occasions.

After winning at Augusta National Golf Club for the first time in 1989 following a play-off victory against Scott Hoch on the second extra hole, he returned a year later to create some Major Championship history.

Victory over Raymond Floyd in a play-off – again achieved on the 11th green – saw Faldo become the first player since Jack Nicklaus (1965/66) and only the second in history to win back-to-back Masters.

He would later win it for a third time in 1996 as he shot a final round 67 to claim a five-shot victory over Greg Norman for what was his sixth and final Major success.

Watch the video at the top of the page to hear from Faldo about his memories of those three triumphs.
