Jordan Spieth's Masters collapse wasn't good for him, but might be good for golf

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 00:04:00 GMT

Because his parents graduated from Saucon Valley High School and he has family still living in this area, Jordan Spieth has become our local connection to big-time golf in the same way that Taylor Swift is Berks County's link to pop culture and music.

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 02:53:53 GMT

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jason Day was lurking just outside Augusta National Golf Club, wondering if he wanted to go in.

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 20:08:00 GMT

Jordan Spieth

The first question he fielded Tuesday was about his "stress level." No, it's not easy being the defending champ. At least Spieth is well-fed, having feasted on Texas BBQ and bacon-and-chive potato salad at the Champions Dinner.
