While boxing fans and everyone else got the match they had wanted for years the same couldn’t be said in the golf world. Unfortunately, golf fans didn’t get the match up they were hoping for as Jordan Spieth was bounced out of group play despite shooting a 15-under over the course of the three days. Hey, that’s match play for you.
It was a long shot at best and I don’t think anybody was actually anticipating it. There will most certainly be opportunities down the road for them to match up and there won’t be any political mumbo-jumbo involved. It’s just worth noting and a little introduction piece to start this article off.
The PGA Tour takes a cross country trip to Florida for The PLAYERS Championship. This isn’t a major, but it is a pretty significant and prestigious event where 49 of the top 50 golfers are teeing it up at TPC Sawgrass.
The top 50 were scheduled to play, but Victor Dubuisson withdrew. In his place is the 22 year old Justin Thomas who is absolutely thrilled at the opportunity. With all that said, let’s go over The PLAYERS Championship power rankings.
