CBS golf broadcasters Jim Nantz & Nick Faldo work Honda Classic for the first time
Palm Beach Gardens (CBS12) —
For the very first time the Honda Classic is on CBS12 this weekend, which means the biggest names in golf broadcasting, Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo, are here in Palm Beach County.
Faldo may be broadcasting for the first time at PGA National, but the CBS golf analyst does remember playing here twice, both at the 1987 PGA Championship and at the 1983 Ryder Cup, with legend Seve Ballesteros.
Faldo's broadcast partner Jim Nantz doesn't have the same connection to PGA National, but he does have one to the Honda Classic tournament. Before it was the Honda, it was the Inverrary Classic, and his parents would take little Jimmy to the course.
"Almost 50 years ago, I'd go to this tournament," says Faldo, "It matters a lot to me."
Nantz has been the author of some of the most memorable lines in sportscasting, like when Tiger won the Masters, "one for the Ages!" So if Woods keeps this comeback going strong, that would be something he may have to come up with a new line for. Perhaps, "One for the age-less!"
Regardless, we'd love to see Nantz, Faldo and the CBS crew, to keep coming back to the Honda.
"We want to come back soon and do this tournament again," says Faldo.
