Those watching the broadcast were watching Sheffler/Smith while Faldo said something to the likes of “Something incredible just happened on 18”. One tweet on Twitter read: “Nick Faldo probably gives away the Wordle answer every morning too…”

“Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out to the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don’t care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game.”
