In time he self-corrected whittling his scores into the 80s which still wasn’t good enough to make his high school team. In college at Cornell he played sporadically and then more frequently while earning a Ph.D. in applied mathematics at Stanford an institution blessed with a friendly year-round climate and a killer campus course.
Others operating in a similar mindset include the Molinari brothers Francesco and Edoardo Jordan Spieth’s swing guru Cameron McCormick and Rickie Fowler’s caddie Joe Skovron to cite a few of the many with whom Broadie has worked.
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.
