4) The next great American golfer tries for history
If you watch this weekend, you could be witnessing history by the next American hopeful.
21-year old Jordan Spieth has been taking the golfing world by storm this year. The Dallas, TX native owns the first-two of four legs of golf’s version of the Grand Slam: The Masters and U.S. Open.
A winner of five golf tournaments this season, including two in a row entering tomorrow, the young hopeful is looking to join exclusive company, that only the likes of Tiger Woods has done in recent memory.
Spieth has momentum on his side and brings an air of confidence entering Thursday. It will help that world number one Rory McIlroy will not be in the field. He was injured in a non-golf related accident to his heel that will keep out of this week’s tournament.
