30 Under Par- Are You Kidding Me?

Jordan Speith

Jordan Spieth, professional golf’s Wunderkind and defending Masters and U.S. Open Champion, finished off the field at the 2016 Hyundai Tournament of Champions last week with a remarkable score of 30 under par for the four days of competition.

That’s almost a birdie on every other hole! On top of the incredible score (he and Ernie Els are the only two players in history to finish a 72-hole event in 30-under par or better), he won for the seventh time on the PGA Tour before the age of 23, matching Tiger Woods.

Ranked #1 in the World, Spieth looks to continue in 2016 what he accomplished in 2015, and the Tournament of Champions victory certainly supports this. With only three months before 2016’s first Major Championship (The Masters Tournament in April), Spieth seems to be in the driver’s seat to have another record-breaking year.

However, he is being challenged, as the youth movement was in full force for the last two weeks in Hawaii, with Spieth, Reed, Koepka, Fowler, Gomez, Blair, Kim, Kisner, and Lovemark all posting impressive results.

This new breed seems to show up with no fear of the “established players” nor the golf course.

They all strike the ball extremely well and have fantastic short games.

As exciting as the NFL Playoffs have been so far, the 2016 PGA Tour should produce some outstanding scores in the coming weeks!

So, hold onto your hats and let the season start for real!
