He pointed out how that week will represent a nice “full circle” moment for him since the Greensboro tour stop is where he made his own PGA Tour debut in 1979. While announcing his retirement, the golfing legend also shared some plans as he revealed that he intends to settle at Faldo Farm. Although it is currently under construction in Montana, he might settle there with his wife Lindsay, and devote some family time and more time to fishing as well. The former golfer will be shifting from the hustle of city life it seems.
Is Nick Faldo Married?
The former professional golfer has been married four times and recently tied the knot to former Mrs Conservative USA Lindsay. The pair tied the knot in December 2020. However, this ceremony happened just because their original plans of a glitzy Kensington Palace bash did not quite go as planned due to the pandemic. So, the pair had to go for a private intimated wedding with only sixteen guests in attendance.
While Faldo and De Marco have been married before, and are fully aware of each other’s past but the golfing star insists that he is keen to look forward, not back while adding how they both had experiences and have moved on from them. The pair believe that while one cannot change the past, they sure can learn from it and the pair lives in the present.
