Faldo to make final appearance at British Open this year

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Three-time British Open champion Nick Faldo will make his final appearance at the tournament at St. Andrews this year.

The English golfer, who will turn 58 during the tournament in July, will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of his second British Open title at the Old Course in 1990.

Faldo says ''my fondest moments on my journey with this great sport are woven with pictures and emotions in this setting. It all means a huge amount to me.''

Faldo also won the British Open at Muirfield in 1987 and 1992, in addition to three Masters titles at Augusta National.

Five-time champion Tom Watson will also be making his final appearance at the tournament.
