Sir Nick Faldo became the greatest British player of his generation by winning The Open three times – the first home player to do so since Henry Cotton.

The Englishman made his Open debut in 1976, at The 105th Championship - finishing a respectable tied 28th at Royal Birkdale Golf Club.

From there, Faldo went on to win three Claret Jug's, in 1987, 1990 and 1992. This success made him a firm favourite with fans all over the world.

During his decorated career, Faldo made 37 appearances at The Open, with his last happening in 2015 at St Andrews. It's fitting that the most successful British player of a generation bid farewell to The Open at the home of golf.

This is a look back at Sir Nick Faldo's First and Last British Open moments.
