WATCH: Nick Faldo aces par-3 in Jim Nantz’ backyard

February 10, 2018

Nick Faldo and Jim Nantz are good buddies, and they both really love Pebble Beach. They’ve combined to tell us about it a time or two, and that love affair isn’t going away anytime soon.

Nantz owns a home at Pebble, and in his backyard is a replica of the famed par-3 7th. It was fitting then that his good buddy Faldo — with quite the audience — stepped up and aced Nantz’ backyard hole Friday evening.

Faldo, in a camo jacket, tossed a little saw-ed off wedge onto the green. It bounced high once, then again and jarred in for the hole-in-one. Thankfully, someone caught it on camera and Faldo tweeted it out to the world.

But Sir Nick was not alone. We can thank golf analyst Luke Elvy for posting a second photo from the evening, in which Faldo is joined by Mark Immelman, both holding up one finger, the universal sign for “Yes, I made an ace.”
