Jordan Spieth The 18 As Par-4 Is ‘The Dumbest Hole I have ever Played’

So how exactly do you know that you are officially a star in the sport that you are in? Well, if you are in a position of raising some serious issues and the organization responds then there you go, you are officially a star and that is what happened with Jordan Spieth. Earlier in the week Jordan raised some serious issues with one of the areas in the field and the USGA took notice of what he actually said.

During the competition, Jordan took to an open Fox microphone and he let the world know what he exactly thinks of the events No. 18 as par 4.According to Jordan, that is, “The Dumbest Hole I have ever Played.” Following his remarks, Mike Davis, the USGA executive director took note of what he said and as a result decided that the players will play the event’s 72 hole as the par 5 for the event. 

Despite the fact that it is not something that many people are actually accustomed too, players can actually influence how the golf field has been set up. In fact, there have been a number of cases where players have been able to influence how golf fields are and how they will play on it. All that is usually needed is for a player to come up and give some very reasonable explanation. 

“If you at some point thought that players did not have an influence regards to hw the course is setup then you are wrong,” Notah Begay said while speaking on Golf Channel on Sunday. “Jordan’s case is perfect example where a player has come up and voiced the discontent he has with a certain course and the USGA took notice of it.”
