Another blow for Genesis: Spieth, disqualified

Riviera can’t catch a break. Just a few hours after Tiger Woods withdrew due to illness, Jordan Spieth‘s disqualification was announced. This was communicated at the end of the second day this Friday.

Spieth, after submitting a card with 73 strokes, two over par, was penalised with disqualification from the tournament for signing the card with an incorrect result. Another significant loss.

Jordan started on Thursday with a more than notable round of 66 strokes, fully entering the fight for victory. However, this Friday, after a much weaker performance, he was tied in twentieth place and 10 behind the leader Patrick Cantlay.

Spieth made the mistake on hole 4, par 3. He made a bogey and on his card he had written a three. These are uncommon mistakes, but they still occur from time to time and leave players like the Texan without the possibility of competing for a prize pool of 20 million dollars. It’s the first competition weekend that Spieth has missed since last year’s Scottish Open.
