    His penalty should be that he has to watch every Texas football game this season.






    That’s seems a little excessive, they guy missed a tournament, he didn’t kill anyone!

    Seems a little counter intuitive. The article I read said he would be suspended from 3 events. But they require you play at least 25 events? Wouldn't suspending him from 3 events next season make it much harder for him to enter 25 events? Who comes up with this s***?






    A professional committee that's who.



    Maybe Jordo's "life coach" (or someone of age in the entourage) should read the fine print and learn to count.




    It’s funny because Jordo is the head of that professional committee. He runs the show on tour.

    Jesus, the level of stupidity in this thread is amazing.



    Bunch of people fail on reading comprehension. Another couple don’t appear aware of when the pga tour season starts/ends. And others can seem to add 23+1 correctly.



    As to the OPs question, my guess is that spieth with pay some insignificant (for him) fine and/or add a new event or do the tour some other favor in the upcoming year. Regardless, it won’t be a big deal to him at all.

    Who cares about him......it’s a BIG DEAL to us. I wonder how he is handling this. I also wonder what is the most balls he has lost on a hole while playing alone on late in the afternoon while shooting his best round ever using nothing but Kirkland six piece golf balls after overhearing some ridiculous things on the driving range.

    Major penalty??? $20,000 is major???



    Spieth should just send in $40,000 to cover next year too.

    Lifetime ban, $20,000,000 fine and the death penalty. Seems reasonable.

    The lifetime ban is a little over the top IMHO.

    Monahan is going to make him play every event next year, including the opposite field events. British Open in the morning, on the tee at the Barbasol in the afternoon.

    The fine won't mean anything to him, the 3 tournament suspension won't either if it's next season (probably won't play the first three tournaments anyway).



    Could make him play two new events this year or play 26 next season. Really he should just play the new events, it's a lot easier and he wouldn't be in this predicament.
  • Roadking2003Roadking2003 AustinMembers Posts: 5,292 ✭✭


    So apparently if YJS misses the Tour Championship he will break the "25 event minimum" rule. I get that he's made the TC every year since 2012, but how does his team let this happen? I wonder what the Tour would actually do to him? Suspend him for a Pro-Am?



    https://www.google.c...imum-starts/amp






    Hmmmm.... let's think. Didn't play enough events so let's suspend him.... making it even harder to play enough events........



    How about a penalty that requires him to play MORE events, not LESS events ???



    Is this like debtors prison?

    There are no events left for him to play this season. The new season starts Oct 1.

    They'll fine him an undisclosed amount and he'll write it off as a loss. I think this happens quite a bit but it's news because it's Jordan.



    I would have a bigger problem with it if he were playing in a bunch of Euro Tour appearance fee events but he just missed a tournament he normally plays in and had mono that kept him sidelined for a while.



    It's no big deal but it's a PGA Tour off week so they need something to talk about.

    They've already said a suspension isn't part of the equation.
  • crcraigcrcraig Members Posts: 55 ✭✭
    Here's the problem I see. The individual tournaments/sponsors would like this rule to have real teeth. They really want the top guys to play in their tournaments. If the Tour fines Spieth $20K, that's setting a precedent at a number that is basically insignificant for exactly the group of players that this rule is aimed at. If I'm JT, DJ, Rose, Koepka, McIlroy, Fowler, etc (all guys that will play less than 25 events this season), why would I jump through hoops next year to play a new tournament if I can just pay $20K and keep my usual schedule?



    Somehow the Tour has to make it clear to the players that this was a "special case" and that a deliberate attempt to break the rule will result in a much larger fine and/or suspension. They can't just be given a get-out-of-jail-for-20k card or the rule falls apart.

    One possibility would be the tour "assigning" Jordan a fall tournament to play.
    swing is irrelevant, score is everything

    just say NO.... to practice swings

    Sorry I meant this year as in this year but next season (October/November).
  • golfandfishinggolfandfishing Members Posts: 3,439 ✭✭
    If the rule calls for a “suspension” they should suspend him from an event he usually plays in, which will basically require him to add an event not on his schedule. Pop him out of Bay Hill and maybe he adds the Louisiana team event or whatever.

    If the minimum number is 15 by adding certain events but can be circumvented by playing 25 it should be $20k for each shy of 25.

    For Spieth it's $20k. Play 20 events it's $100k.

    He will not serve any suspension and he will get fined an undisclosed amount. That's all that will happen. It's actually a really simple situation but there's nothing to talk about this week so it is news.
