After failing to play his way into the Tour Championship Jordan Spieth now faces a punishment from the PGA Tour. His penance: a $20k fine and/or a three-tournament suspension.
Among the records he keeps in his office at Columbia are computerized logs of many of his rounds replete with scores and shot-dispersion patterns — handy information for a guy who likes to have a plan for every hole.
Jordan Spieth won’t be getting a Tour Championship invite but he will be getting a slap on the wrist. The 25-year-old will miss the final event of the FedEx Cup playoffs for the first time in his career next week after just barely falling short of finishing in the top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings — and in the process will be violating a Tour rule.
