Jordan Spieth was in the PGA Tour’s Dog House thanks to his lack of appearances last season, he didn’t quite hit the number required by The Sherriff of Nottingham (aka Commish Jay Monahan) and his Henchmen.
After a few mea culpas by Jordy, he’ll make up for his misdeeds by doing something he normally wouldn’t do — play in a fall “cross-over” event. He’ll be in the field next week in Vegas for the Shriners Hospital event and it will be the first time we’ve seen him in a while.
Jordy didn’t make it to the Tour Championship and has skipped the lucrative Asian swing, including this week’s WGC event in Shanghai.
Hopefully, Jordy’s been working on his woeful golf game back home in Texas.
In the meantime, he’s dropped out of the world’s Top 10 for the first time since 2014. Jason Day’s tie for fifth last week at the CJ Cup in South Korea moved the Aussie into Jordy’s old spot — No. 10.
So hopefully Jordy can get it together in Vegas, where he headlines with field along with his pal Rickie Fowler.
Has the makings of a great week. Golf by day, blackjack tables at night with Rickie.
Where do we sign up?
In the meantime, Jordy’s back in The Dog House, he’ll be out on work-release next week to see if his game is any better.
