Golf Phenom Could Be at Gold Mountain Next Summer

May 26th, 2010 by cstark

Did you pick up on the story about the 16-year-old who made the cut at the Byron Nelson Championship in Texas last week. Not only did Jordan Spieth make the cut, but he was in contention under the final nine. After three rounds in the 60s, he shot a 72 and tied for 16th. Spieth, was the sixth-youngest player to ever make a 36-hole cut in a PGA Tour.
Spieth will try to defend his U.S. Junior Amateur Championship on July 19-25 at Egypt Valley Country Club in Grand Rapids, Mich. If he does, he’ll join Tiger Woods as the only player to win back-to-back Junior Amateurs. Woods won three a row. Spieth, if he wins at Egypt Valley, could get his third straight at Bremerton’s Gold Mountain, which is hosting the 2011 Junior Am.  By then  he’ll be a household name for golf fans.
