Faldo winds down playing career
Nick Faldo
Faldo will turn 50 in 2007
Nick Faldo has taken a major step towards retirement by accepting a job with American television network CBS.

The 49-year-old Briton, who has won six majors, will become the network's lead golf analyst, replacing former US PGA Tour regular Lanny Wadkins.

"I view this as a fabulous opportunity for me, which may come once every 10 years," said Faldo. "But it will seriously curtail my playing career.

"My playing days aren't completely over but my priority now is given to CBS."

Faldo's decision means he will miss next year's Masters, an event he has won three times.

His other three major wins came in The Open.

CBS has signed a six-year contract with the US PGA Tour and will broadcast 21 events from 2007.
