Jordan Spieth misses Tour Championship,
may face fine or suspension by PGA Tour

CBS News, by Kyle Porter

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/10/2018 8:38:01 PM

Jordan Spieth shot a 3-over 73 in the final round of the 2018 BMW Championship and finished No. 31 in the FedEx Cup points race. Only the top 30 in the FedEx Cup rankings move on to the Tour Championship at East Lake in two weeks. This is significant because it´s the first time Spieth has missed the Tour Championship as a professional, but it´s also significant because Spieth will end the season with only 24 tournaments played. (Snip) The PGA Tour has a rule called the "strength of field regulation," which requires golfers to either

Comments:
Rule is to discourage players from cherry-picking only the best tournaments and having additional time off during the season. He could have easily avoided violating the rule.

Hmmmm. Most of the golfers who made the cut played less than 25 events, even ‘Saint Tiger’...

Jordan is a streaky player. Putts like a god one week then starts missing 3 footers. He’s young and will be a force to come for the next 20 years.

So let´s see this again: Jordan is fined for not playing 25 tournaments and cannot go to the FedEx cup, BUT, Tiger played only 4 or 5 and can go. Double standards???? East Lake is a terrible golf course in a terrible side of town. They bus people from remote parking lots half an hour away. Time to move the FedEx tournament to another place.

As with almost all bureaucracies, the PGA Tour has too many rules. The Tour also has too many pretentious events. Except for Firestone (recently dropped from the schedule) I consider the so called World Golf Championships to be over-rated tournaments with no tradition. I have a similar view of the FedEx Playoffs.

#3, I will agree that East Lake isn’t in the best part of town, but you are 100 percent wrong in saying it is a horrible course!

Have you played it? I have, as well as Augusta National and many more spectacular golf courses. East Lake is a jewel. Period.

Planning down to the last tournament, Spieth expected his 25th event to be the Tour Championship. It´s rather shocking to him and to the rest of us golf fans that he played poorly when he couldn´t afford to, ahot +3 (73), and wound up 31st in FedEx points. Even the best players occasionally underperform.

There is a logical reason for requiring pros to play a minimum amount of events: the strength of the fields in the less prestigious events.

As for Tiger, he had (very serious) lumbar spinal fusion surgery in 2017, and wasn´t anywhere near ready to play last September when the current "season" began. (I just had two level lumbar spinal fusion surgery twenty-eight and twenty-six days ago, respectively. The surgeon doesn´t want me swinging a golf club for six months, at least. Recovery from spinal fusion surgery is a long process.) He would have had a medical exemption anyway. In March of this year he finished solo second at Innisbrook Copperhead, and has had several other high finishes (no wins yet). He´s nearly back into winning form.

The four World Golf Championbship events are what remains of Greg Norman´s abortive late ´80s dream of a worldwide tour for the really big bucks for the top thirty guys. The rest could play for scraps on the regular Tour. I, too, believe these events are unremarkable, except for the extra money. The Players Championship is now a legitimate #5 tournament, after the four majors, naturally. The Players, not the PGA Championship (as advertised during the PGA) has the strongest field in golf. The PGA lets in twenty club pros--about eighteen too many--watering down the field.

The Abrams Machine Is Not Done Yet

Stacey Abrams is not conceding. That’s what she said at a press conference in Atlanta on Friday. “This is not a speech of concession,” she told supporters and reporters, “because concession means an action is right, true, or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.” But the former Georgia state representative and Democratic nominee for governor did essentially end her campaign and recognize that her opponent, Brian Kemp, the GOP nominee and former state secretary of state, will officially win the election. “I acknowledge that Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in

The Woolsey fire has burned nearly 100,000 acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Thousands of people in mobile-home parks and tony gated communities alike have been displaced. Many have lost their homes completely. California government officials have estimated that more than 1 million homes throughout the state are located in "high-risk" fire areas. That´s a lot of property to protect when a fast-moving wildfire is approaching, and county fire departments and volunteers often can´t manage the job alone.

Flames from the deadly Camp Fire won´t reach California´s Bay Area, but that doesn´t mean it´s not still wreaking havoc on the region. Smoke from the Northern California fire is leading to record-high levels of air pollution. Masks have become the fashion statement du jour in San Francisco the past few days. The air quality index in San Francisco rose to 258 at noon Friday, a reading which qualifies as "very unhealthy." That reading had only sunk to 209 by 9 p.m. local time on Friday.

On Friday morning, the snow from an early winter storm started to melt, and people in and around New York City wanted answers from their government officials. But on Thursday night, they were just trying to get home. The region was crippled by snow and ice, with the effects ranging from felled tree branches in city neighborhoods to children trapped on school buses for hours. In New Jersey, one person died after an accident involving a train and a car, said Gov. Philip D. Murphy. As residents recovered and demanded an explanation, The Times asked readers to share their experiences.

A House Republican who represents the northern part of Maine became the latest incumbent to be unseated as the Democrats´ blue wave continues more than a week after Election Day. Democrat Jared Golden was declared the winner Thursday in Maine´s 2nd Congressional District after trailing Rep. Bruce Poliquin in the initial tally of votes. But Golden was declared the winner thanks to Maine´s new ranked-choice system of voting, which allows voters to rank candidates in their order of preference and to transfer their votes if no candidate gets more than 50 percent.

A fight broke out in a closed-door meeting of House Democrats over climate change as a powerful veteran lawmaker fought with freshman star Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members-elect over the creation of a special panel for the issue.

Pallone argued that his committee and other existing panels within the House could take on the issue aggressively.

WASHINGTON - President Trump plans to visit California on Saturday “to meet with individuals impacted by the wildfires,” a spokeswoman said on Thursday. The White House has not yet given details on where Trump will go, what he will do and whom he plans to visit. During visits to other natural disaster sites, Trump has focused on meeting with first responders and public officials, and has had less direct contact with victims than his predecessors. This will be just Trump’s second visit to the nation’s most populous state since his election. His first California visit, which he made in March

TALLAHASSEE - Nine days after Election Day, and one machine recount later, it is all but official: Ron DeSantis is Florida’s next governor. The results of the statewide machine recount which rolled by the Thursday 3 p.m. deadline, solidified what most already knew, as DeSantis has already made himself busy with transitioning to power and creating a new government. In the governor’s race, it was an anticlimactic finish to the dramatic machine recount — plagued with technical issues and an avalanche of lawsuits — with almost not change in the margin between DeSantis and his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum

The anti-Pelosi insurgents are coalescing around a new strategy in their quest to deny Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) the Speaker´s gavel: recruit a woman to run against her. The shift in approach comes as the rebellious group has been faced with a barrage of criticism for trying to take down Pelosi, who became the first female Speaker of the House in 2007, on the heels of an election cycle being dubbed the "Year of the Woman." Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.), one Pelosi detractor, hammered the argument that the California Democrat´s promotion is the only way to secure female leadership at

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her. Brenda Snipes, elections supervisor of Broward county, was condemned by Republicans and Democrats after failing to submit tallies in the US Senate race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson on schedule. (Snip) In a short interview, Snipes, 75, said: “You know, the protesters have been claiming stuff all week so whatever they’re doing, that’s what they’re doing.

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.
