Nick Faldo returns to competitive action

The busiest man in golf is about to return to the links.

Nick Faldo, an analyst for CBS Sports and The Golf Channel, returns to competition for the first time in eight months when he plays the British Open at Carnoustie, followed by his Champions Tour debut at the Senior British Open.

Faldo turns 50 on July 18, and his senior debut will take place at Muirfield, where he won the first of his six majors in 1987. Faldo made 18 pars in the final round to hold off Paul Azinger by one shot.

"I'm hoping I can do that again," Faldo said Tuesday.

His last tournament was the Merrill Lynch Shootout last November, where he teamed with tournament host Greg Norman. Faldo said his left shoulder is a little tight, but that he has been doing biomechanic exercises to get in shape.

His son, Matthew, will be his caddie.

"I'm looking forward to getting to Scotland, testing the golfing muscles for a change," he said.

Faldo and Azinger will be back together one last time, both working for ABC Sports during the British Open. They also will be opposing Ryder Cup captains at Valhalla next year.
