The 19th Hole Golf Show: Why Jordan Spieth's 2016 doesn't matter

Jan 07, 2016, 03:58 PM

In the 2016 opener for The 19th Hole Golf Show, we talk about Jordan Spieth's view that he isn't playing this season as an encore to his incredible 2015. What does he mean by that and why does that make a lot of sense to him -- and other athletes -- but not to the general public?

We look at Spieth's comments in the context of the careers of Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, including the need for athletes to always look forward to keep their edge.

Finally, we talk about Justin Thomas' comment that he'd rather be on the winning U.S. Ryder Cup team than win a major in 2016, what that does and doesn't say about him and that it might indicate the Ryder Cup Task Force is doing its job.
