Good thing Nick Faldo owns three Claret Jugs because one of them just might end up as a pachyderm snack.
Faldo – who won the British Open in 1987, 1990 and 1992, along with the Masters in 1989, 1990 and 1996 – is spending a few days this week in the beautiful resort area of Phuket in Thailand, which is hosting the BMW Golf Cup International.
The event features amateurs from around the globe – and one very curious elephant that seems overly interested that precious silver chalice. Good thing Faldo is a big, strong guy.
