Earlier this month, not long after the Golf Channel announced that Nick Faldo would be its lead PGA Tour analyst in 2007, CBS startled the TV sports industry by also hiring Faldo, to replace Lanny Wadkins in the tower at 18. In addition, Faldo, 49, is likely to make a cameo during ABC's coverage of the British Open. SI's Michael Bamberger checked in with the man who will soon be the most watched announcer in golf.

NF: I'd better not name names. The British media have a field day with that sort of thing.

SI: How will you be different from Johnny Miller as an announcer?

NF: Johnny's great, but I'll do it my way. I think of it not as a golf broadcast but as entertainment, for three to five hours. I need to make sure I'm quick, informative, serious when that's what's called for, funny when that's the right tone. I'd like to offer a bit of instruction. You have to be sharp, and you have to be entertaining. Simple as that.
