Comments Off on ‘He should have retired about five years ago’: Paige Spiranac makes bold comments on legendary golf broadcaster’s retirement


Sir Nick Faldo recently retired from golf analyst. Since he was CBS’ senior golf analyst for PGA Tour coverage for the past 16 years, many golf fans were disappointed when he retired. However, that was not the case for former professional golfer Paige Spiranac.

“I was a big fan of Faldo, but I feel like he should have retired about five years ago.” said the 29-year-old. “Because he just…I don’t know if he just lost interest in it,” she explained again. “Maybe just getting a little senile.” Spiranac expressed his thoughts on Sir Faldo’s retirement through the latest episode of his podcast, “Playing a Round with Paige Renee”.

The professional golfer turned golf analyst had chosen the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic as his retirement location. He then received a moving farewell from his colleagues and members of the CBS crew. Notably, most golf fans have had tears in their eyes watching their favorite golf analyst cry on TV.

However, Spiranac did not have the same emotions as the others. In a Twitter video she then posted, she expressed how she didn’t think Sir Faldo had been at his best over the past two years.

“He just started making these really weird comments,” Spiranac said in his podcast. “I don’t know what he was trying to do” she added. “It was trying to appeal to millennials or Gen Z, but it felt like it just didn’t hit well.”

The 1-time Catus Tour champion also added that she loves the former NBC golf analyst. Feherty is notably one of the few golf analysts to join the new LIV Golf Invitational series. He began commentating on Series LIV since his event, which was held at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
