Spieth’s caddie can’t finish round because of heat

FORT WORTH, Texas – Walking up the 11th fairway it had already been an eventful day for Jordan Spieth, but even he was surprised by what happened next at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. “He [caddie Michael Greller] didn’t tell me at all until we were walking down the 11th and he said, ‘Hey, this is my last hole.’ I was kind of surprised,” Spieth said of his caddie’s decision to seek medical attention for heat exhaustion. Greller was replaced on the bag by Spieth’s physical trainer, Damon Goddard, who joined the group on the eighth tee. Spieth said Greller had told Goddard that he might not be able to caddie the entire round with the heat index soaring to 108 degrees on Saturday. Goddard has caddied

Did Jordan Spieth set the bar too high, too soon? 

He’s way too talented to go into the tank for long. But golf is full of players who were unbelievable for relatively short stretches. Johnny Miller comes to mind on that front. David Duval was No. 1 in the world at one point…and he just cratered. But Jordan’s too mentally tough for that to happen to him. Is it time to stop considering Jordan Spieth an elite golfer? Mosley: My goodness no.  I think he had so much success in the majors that those tournaments have become his focus. Tiger was able to win a ton of tournaments while also focusing on the majors. There’s a balance that Spieth will have to find. One rough D-FW swing shouldn’t cause everyone to panic. He’ll be back with a vengeance.

Ballesteros was my idol and inspiration

Henrik Stenson has been crowned with the newly-named Seve Ballesteros Award — formally known as European Tour golfer of the year — for the second time in his career ahead of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Thursday. Stenson won The Open Championship at Royal Troon in June 2016, the first major of his 19-year professional career, followed by the Race to Dubai title and Olympic silver in Rio. “Seve was one of my idols and it was such a shame he had to leave us early, but this award will help us remember him even more in the future,” Stenson told the European Tour website. Swedish-born Stenson, 41, is the first winner of the renamed award — which is now dedicated to legendary Spanish
