WINDERMERE, Fla. – Say this for Jordan Spieth: His game travels well.
Over the past three weeks, he has seen three continents, traveled more than 21,000 miles and played some darn good golf. At the Dunlop Phoenix, Australian Open and this week’s Hero World Challenge, Spieth shot a combined 53 under par while posting a scoring average of 66.9.
“I take a lot of pride in that,” Spieth said afterward. “That’s the goal in the future: I want to play all over the world and experience on and off the course different places and see how golf has made its way in places it’s growing and see how prominent it is in places it’s been for a while.”
Spieth’s caddie, Michael Greller, joked during the trophy ceremony that the kid is probably looking for somewhere to play next week, and why not? The 21-year-old made his 30th tournament start this week, and he has no intentions of slowing down in 2015. He is likely to make his debut at the Phoenix Open.
“I may play a couple less events to be fully 100 percent at the end of the (FedEx Cup) playoffs,” Spieth said.
