  Faldo off to fast start at Senior British Open - USATODAY.com
GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Nick Faldo recaptured enough of his famous competitive edge Thursday to shoot a 3-under 68 for a share of the lead in his senior tour debut.
Faldo's accuracy was all the more remarkable because last week's British Open was the only tournament he had played in for several months.
But Faldo was quick to recover, his accuracy getting him close to the pins and enabling him to hole from 3 feet at the third, 5 feet at the fourth and 4 feet at the fifth.

Particularly as they spent most of the day chatting away while the 45-year-old Faldo trudged along, much like the father who had been dragged out for a round by his sons on a bitterly cold day when he would rather be at home by the fire.
