Nick Faldo to retire from CBS Sports booth, be replaced by Trevor Immelman

Nick Faldo will retire from the CBS Sports booth at the end of the PGA Tour season in August, he announced in a statement Tuesday.

Faldo, who is in his 16th season as CBS’ lead analyst, will work his final event at the Wyndham Championship on Aug. 4-7.

Faldo’s replacement in the booth will be former Masters champion Trevor Immelman.

“Sir Nick has had a remarkable career on network television for nearly 20 years and is one of the most accomplished commentators to ever sit in the 18th tower,” CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said. “Nick brought the same passion and dedication that propelled him to the world’s No. 1 golfer to our broadcasts. He combined his profound knowledge of golf with his wit and charm, enlightening viewers and elevating our coverage. While his voice will be missed on-air, we wish him the best as he continues to positively impact the game of golf around the world.”

Immelman, 42, has been part of the CBS team since 2019 and will slide into the 18th tower full time alongside Jim Nantz.

“He brings the credentials and experience as a major champion, along with a unique perspective and knowledge of today’s stars, having recently competed alongside them,” McManus said of Immelman, who won the 2008 Masters and is this year's International Presidents Cup captain. 

Faldo, who turns 65 next month, said that he informed McManus earlier this year at Pebble Beach that he intended to retire from CBS at the end of his current deal. He said that he will “entertain other opportunities and partnerships, as well as expanding the reach and growth of my ever-expanding global golf course design business.”
