ode He can still play in the silly season, no? Am I missing something?
And the tour ain't gonna do squat to Jordan! Lol
It's my understanding the Fed Ex Championship wraps up the 2017-2018 season with the $10M bonus the cherry on top. The silly season starts the 2018-2019 tournament year.
One of the articles I read about Spieth's dilemna is everything fell in to place so he would meet the minimum appearance requirement (Ryder Cup, first Fed Ex elimination events, etc.) except for having one shitty round Friday (a +1 71) that bumped him out of the top 30. And now he's at the mercy of Mother Nature in the morning to have an opportunity to play his way back in. Jordan is Chairman of the Tour Players Advisory Committee so he's not going to ask for an exception. He could have received an automatic exemption by appearing in just one new tournament he hadn't played in the previous 4 years. Just one. I REALLY like Jordan but is he a little bit snooty about which tournaments he plays? He just had to enter ONE new tournament and given that site a 'name' bump and the fans in that region a chance to see him.
Maybe we will see more top players enter events during the silly season. It gives them a jump on money earned, Fed Ex points, and an auto exemption from the mandatory 25 events by the end of the year.
