Faldo calls it off

12.05am 7th October 2002 - People

The official launch of The Nick Faldo Golf Company has been postponed. The event had been planned for Monday 14th October at Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire. On Friday letters and e-mails were despatched to all the invited guests explaining that Nick had decided to focus his full attention on trying to gain a place in the next Ryder Cup.

“Whilst I remain committed to the future development of my business interests,” said Nick, “as you may have read in the press today, I have decided to focus my full attention on my playing career with the intention of trying to regain my place in the 2004 European Ryder Cup team. As such, the launch of The Nick Faldo Golf Company will be put on hold.

“Because of this decision I have also taken the opportunity to refocus my business needs, which will now be run by IMG and my associate Mike Hanna. All future interests should therefore be channelled through Guy Kinnings or Nick Blofeld at IMG.”
