Does Jim Nantz listen to Masters theme music at his leisure? Of course he does. Does he have a replica of Pebble Beach’s par-3 seventh hole in his back yard? Of course he does. Does he combine the two with a six-time major champion? You bet he does.
Nick Faldo stopped by Nantz’ Pebble Beach home early this week and did a live Periscope video. The broadcast partners discussed everything from Fred Couples’ sleeping habits to Faldo’s disdain for school work. You can check it out below.
On Thursday, Faldo tweeted out video of him playing Nantz’ replica hole. The video was complete with Nantz commentary and the unmistakable sounds of Masters music.
Unfortunately, Faldo won’t be joining Brandt Snedecker (yep, that’s how it’s spelled) on the Pebble Beach Pebble for those making an ace on the hole.
Faldo is competing in this week’s Pure Insurance Championship on the PGA Tour Champions. The event is contested with a junior partner at Pebble Beach Golf Links and Poppy Hills Golf Course.
