Nick Faldo won the Doral championship in 1995, and now he's back at the famed Miami course with a new playing partner -- Donald Trump.
Trump hired Faldo to redesign the Red and Gold courses at Doral, and already, their partnership is "entertaining," Faldo said Friday, in between signing copies of his newly updated book, Swing for Life, at the PGA Merchandise Show here.
He'll turn the Red course into "a really playable resort course, as beautiful as possible," Faldo said.
He finds working with Trump "delightful" -- which means they enjoy each other's sense of humor. In mid-December, the duo marked their good fortune by tossing coins into a new fountain Trump had just built in the style of Rome 's Trevi fountain.
"I threw in a dollar, and he threw in a quarter," Faldo quipped.
Faldo, who has a home in Winter Park, was also debuting three new business ventures at the PGA Show: Faldo by Edel, a customized-clubs business; Faldo Series Academy in Arizona, a residential school for potentially elite golfers; and a new golf apparel line called Claret & Green.
