Maybe Jordan Spieth needs to go over the new rules of golf.
It’s not like a complicated physics formula that only Bryson DeChambeau can understand.
The new rules basically simply the game and one of the big ones is that you now drop from knee height rather than shoulder height.
Spieth went straight for the shoulder-high drop Thursday at the Sony Open, fortunately PGA Tour official Carlton “Slugger” White was watching him and had to give it the old “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa” there Jordy. Spieth’s caddy Michael Greller was joining White as well.
Spieth then took the proper drop but chimed with this: “I don’t understand why it’s such a big deal, you’d just re-drop from the right height?”
Wrong Jordy. You could have been penalized for an improper drop had you played the ball after said improper drop.
But Spieth was right, if he caught himself using the wrong drop and corrected it, yes, no penalty.
Still, Jordy, pay attention to the new rules.
You can study them in the Dog House overnight.
