A classy person on and off the golf course, who is known for his remodeled swing which helped him earn the three-Masters title, is now a lead golf analyst for CBS and gives his profound and meaningful insights as a golf pundit. His personal life is as astonishing as his professional life as he married thrice with the same number of divorce which better explains the character that he is in real life. The causes of divorce are reportedly due to numerous extramarital affairs and flings with multiple women.
A Golfer and A Golf Analyst!
The former World No. 1 golfer is recognized as one of the top players of his Era. The highly talented player has over 30 victories on European Tour while grabbing hold of six major championships which include three-Masters Title. In the mid-1980s he began to rebuild his swing action where many feared that he would lose the flare and his charisma.
But under the tutelage of David Leadbetter, he achieved the milestones after milestones. Even after he achieved many goals of his career, many pundits claim that he could have achieved more and he never fulfilled his true potential. After his golfing career done and dusted, he miraculously became a broadcaster for ABC Sports’ PGA Tour in 2004.
After working for two years, he later signed with CBS on 3rd October 2006 where he replaced Lanny Wadkins as the lead golf analyst. On 2nd September 2017, Calgary Herald reported that he is one of the frontrunners at the fifth annual Shaw Charity Classic.
How Much is Nick’s Net Worth and Salary?
The Ace golfer, who landed the job of lead analyst since 2006, signed a multi-year contract with CBS where he reportedly earns about $8 million as an annual salary. His salary seems astronomical as the analyst received a mere $5 million over the course of his golfing career.
The English professional summons an astonishing net worth of $60 million which is credited to his job and his golfing career.
Extramarital Affairs and Troublesome Married Life!
When he was twenty-one, Nick Faldo met Melanie Rockall and instantly fell for her. The couple married in the private ceremony in 1979.
But after five years of married life, the couple headed for divorce after Rockall found that he was having extramarital affairs with his manager’s secretary, Miss Bennett.
In an interview with The Guardian, he revealed that:
‘We were happily married for eight months. Unfortunately, we were married for four-and-a-half years.’
His public statement explains the despair and hatred in their short-lived relationship. After the divorce, he married his then- girlfriend, Gill Bennett in 1986 and welcomed three children, Natalie, Matthew, and Georgia.
Later, Faldo moved to America on PGA Tour leaving his wife and family behind in 1995. The split didn’t come cheap though, and they cordially settled around £7 million.
His second marriage came to an abrupt end, after his alleged relationship with a golfing student named Brenna Cepelak who was 20 at that time.
After three years of romances with young Cepelak, he met Valerie Bercher. After he ditched Brenna, she reportedly shredded his Porsche with the golf club causing £10,000 damage. She even demanded millions of dollars every year as the settlement but only received a quarter of what she demanded.
His third married life began in July 2001, when he married Valeria Bercher in a lavish and star-studded wedding ceremony in his home. He finally looked to have a satisfying relationship, when the couple gave birth to a lovely daughter Emma Scarlet in 2003.
But ‘everything that starts well doesn’t necessarily end well,' as he filed for divorce in 2006. The woman whom he described as “The One” reportedly demanded £15 million as a settlement. Dailymail reported that the apparent cause of the breakout was the imposing character of Valeria who expects him to help out and doesn’t consider him to a champion inside the four walls.
His Short Bio and Family:
