      Sir Nick Faldo joins Sky Sports for The Open

      Sky Sports has strengthened its unprecedented coverage of The Open even further, by adding six-time Major winner Sir Nick Faldo to its team of commentators and experts.

      Viewers can enjoy insight and analysis from the former world number one who won 41 tournaments including six- Majors during his playing career. He will join Sky Sports’ award-winning golf team that will offer golf fans an entire channel dedicated to The Open, live coverage of all four day’s play from the opening tee shot and commentary and analysis from a team that includes Paul McGinley, Colin Montgomerie and Butch Harmon.

      The Open is part of another busy summer of sport on Sky which also includes England cricket, international rugby union and every F1® race live. Non-subscribers can watch all seven Sky Sports channels using NOW TV for as little £6.99 for a day pass, or £10.99 for seven days.

      Sir Nick Faldo said: “I am happy to have the opportunity to work with the Sky Sports team in presenting The Open Championship. This Championship and its storied history means a lot to me. I hope to share insight, entertainment and a little local knowledge with Sky Sports viewers.”

      Sky Sports head of golf Jason Wessely added: “Sir Nick Faldo is one of golf’s greats and I know our viewers will enjoy hearing the thoughts and opinions from someone who has been there and done it in The Open. He’ll be able to take our viewers inside the ropes and explain what the players are going through, from the first round on Thursday through to coming down the stretch on Sunday afternoon.

      “We’re really looking forward to telling The Open story from Royal Troon next month, and with Sir Nick Faldo joining the team, we’ll be even better placed to give the Championship the coverage it deserves.”

      Faldo first lifted the famous Claret Jug at Muirfield a day after his 30th birthday and then repeated the feat with a stunning -18 triumph at St. Andrews three years later. His third Open Championship, once more at Muirfield, came in 1992. He is three times a Masters Champion ('89, '90 and '96). He also made a record 11 Ryder Cup appearances and has earned the most individual points (25) of any player in Ryder Cup history.

      The channel launches on 11 July, when Sky Sports 1 becomes ‘Sky Sports The Open’. Sky’s live coverage of The 145th Open at Royal Troon will begin on 14 July ahead of the opening tee shot at 6.35am which will be shown live for the first time on television in the UK and Ireland. The Championship continues until 17 July.

      Sky’s coverage of The Open will be a highlight of another unmissable summer of sport on Sky Sports which includes live England Test cricket against Pakistan, every Formula 1® Grand Prix including Silverstone and England’s rugby union tour of Australia. Then in August there will be 126 live Premier League games with more top picks and Friday night matches for the first time.

      This year Sky Sports is the only place to watch all four Majors and the Ryder Cup. The full schedule is available to those that subscribe to Sky Sports and to non-subscribers through NOW TV, the UK’s leading streaming service available on 60 devices, which offers access to all seven sport channels for £6.99 a day or through a week pass at £10.99.

      Interesting, Faldo and Montgomerie working alongside each other.
      Some old bitter feuds may rise to the fore again...
