Sir Nick Faldo won all six of his major titles with four different sets of Mizuno irons, so it sort of makes sense to rejoin as brand ambassador on the eve of The Masters, a tournament he won three times.

Faldo, 58, who still has all of his major-winning sets of irons at home, spent some time on Mizuno's Tour truck with fellow staff player Chris Wood before the duo set off to Augusta National. 

NEWS: FALDO BACK TO MIZUNO

England's greatest ever golfer is one of only three players to successfully defend a Masters title following back-to-back wins in 1989 and 1990, and he completed the hat-trick at Augusta with a memorable triumph in 1996 when overhauling a six-shot deficit to Greg Norman in the final round.

Faldo, who played in this week's Par 3 Contest but will not play in The Masters, also won the Open Championship on three occasions in 1987, 1990 and 1992. 

MAYHEM: WOOD'S CLUBS GO MISSING BEFORE MASTERS

TOUR REACTION: MIZUNO MP-5 IRON

Check out Mizuno's latest series of videos with Faldo, who compares one of his old sets of MP-9 irons with his new MP-5s ahead of Augusta.

He also sheds light on his experience with Mizuno and what is required for Wood to master Augusta.
