At the BMW Championship Jordan Spieth’s Tied 57th place slipped him to 31st spot in the FedEx Cup rankings so by one spot he misses out on playing in the Tour Championship.
He said “I was in control of my own destiny and didn’t have it this week. Riding some momentum but my game kind of got a little off”.
As explained in the post below Drama at the BMW Championship, Spieth fails to fulfil a PGA Tour Scheduling Requirement by only playing in 24 events.
He said “I obviously accept whatever fine it is and move on. I try and add one every year but it is kind of tough”.
This unusual situation is a warning for even the highest ranked golfers not to get complacent. It seems to me that the PGA tour are saying that the tour comes first – wheras the European tour have been more accommodating and flexible with their members underlining their “players first” philosophy.
