Nick Faldo will make Champions Tour debut in SAS tournament

August 28, 2013 

Nick Faldo, the winner of six major championships, has chosen the 2013 SAS Championship to make his Champions Tour debut.

Tournament organizers said Wednesday that Faldo would join the field set for Oct. 11-13 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary. Faldo has played in two Senior British Open championships but not in a Champions Tour event.

Faldo said he was pleased with his showing in the British Open this summer. A three-time Open winner, he missed the 36-hole cut but said it gave him the urge to play more tour golf, noting, “I look forward to the preparation and testing my competitive skills again.”

Also committing to the SAS field are defending champion Bernhard Langer and 2011 winner Kenny Perry. Staff Reports
