Because Spieth didn’t qualify for East Lake he will violate the PGA Tour’s scheduling rule that mandates Tour members either play a new tournament (one they haven’t played in four years) or tee it up in 25-plus events. Spieth has done neither in the 2017-18 season.
Tiger Woods is credited with not only the longest streak of No. 1-ranked weeks in a row (281 from 2005-2010) but also with the highest total tally of weeks at No. 1 with 683. Greg Norman is second with 331 total weeks.
Bradley was right. Based on the 54-hole standings he was in position to secure the 30th and final spot in the season finale edging out No. 31 Jordan Spieth in the process.
