Nick Faldo changed into the jumper he wore as he won the 1987 Open Championship for the final hole of his final appearance at the tournament today.
Despite going out third bottom of the field with a plus 10 score over the first two days, Faldo was able to go out on a high at St Andrews.
Playing alongside Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose, Faldo put on the same bright yellow jumper which he wore on the final day of his first Open victory in 1987.
He beat Paul Azinger and Rodger Davis that day to lift the Claret Jug at Muirfield.
So it was no surprise to see him take a trip down memory lane as he waved goodbye to the competition.
Stopping at St Andrews’ iconic Swilcan Bridge for pictures before he finished off the 18th hole.
And the reception he got from the thousands of spectators watching on was something else:

It was a memorable day for Faldo, who will always be welcome at The Open as a three-time winner – his last coming in 1992 at Muirfield again.
There’s only one thing to do as Faldo bids farewell to the tournament.. let’s watch his maiden Open victory all over again:
