The most expensive balls will typically offer the highest spin rates for sharpening your short game (and the least expensive will typically offer the least). But enough of our spin. Dig in. You want all-around Tour-caliber performance with a softer feel and more spin (see Tiger Woods).
I like the rule too just to keep some of the big names checking in once in awhile at the needier Tour stops. Yet it seems unduly harsh in Spieth’s case. I mean this is the guy that came back to the John Deere a few years ago when he didn’t have to — and practically was all the star power at the Byron Nelson this year. Still the boys who have already weighed in are right. Bottom line is the bottom line and if by a quirk he just misses out on Atlanta I think Jordan can handle the freight.
Xander Schauffele had a six-footer on his final hole to make the cut on Friday and missed it. He seems to have disappeared from the conversation now even though the guy was 10th on the Ryder Cup points list. That’s crazy! Finau’s been fantastic so it’ll be tough for anyone else to play their way back in.
