Lifting the Wanamaker Trophy for the second time would also see the 25-year-old become the third youngest player after Woods and Jack Nicklaus to win four majors, just one less than the total won by the late Seve Ballesteros and two behind Faldo.

"We are in a new era now. Whether it becomes Rory McIlroy's era, we don't quite know yet," said Faldo, who won three Masters and three Open titles.
