Jordan Spieth in New Role as U.S. Anchor at Ryder Cup
CHASKA, Minn. — It may be peculiar how much the Ryder Cup matters, but it does. A lot.
Just days after $10 million dollars is awarded as a bonus at the Tour Championship, the best players in the world tee it up for no money at all at this flamboyant exhibition. Nothing but pride.
This week, after a year’s worth of 20, 25, sometimes more than 30 events, that pride is palpable at Hazeltine National. “Honestly, I think we’re just tired of being told that we haven’t won in a while,” Jordan Spieth said at his press conference Tuesday.
