It’s a very sensible rule and the penalties should be much steeper. Steph Curry and LeBron go to every NBA city no matter how bad the home team is. It badly hurts the Tour product that the stars skip half the tournaments each year. The Tour would be much better off with only 25 tournaments a year instead of 40+.
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.
Fun! Tracking Woods this year has been fun. The new kinder gentler Tiger had fun and those following along got to enjoy the ride along with him. He’s given the entire sport a jolt. A fantastic season.
