Faldo to Golf Channel

Biting off a lion's share of the PGA Tour coverage beginning next year, the Golf Channel desperately needed to bolster its talent in the booth. It did that today, announcing the hiring of Nick Faldo, the six-time major winner turned ABC color man.

Personally, I think it's a smart move. Faldo, a sourpuss to the media and fans during his playing career, has taken great pains to take the wraps of his wit and likeabilty since jumping to TV.

I've like Faldo in the booth. What would be even better is if TGC could land Paul Azinger as well. They are a good pair.
