SPI­ETH’S A ROOKIE ON CUT RULES

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Golf The 2019 Masters -

JOR­DAN SPI­ETH is known as one of the smartest cook­ies in the jar but he ad­mit­ted even he didn’t know the cut rule at the Masters un­til Fri­day.

Cad­die Michael Greller had to re-ed­u­cate Spi­eth, who beat the cut, dur­ing his sec­ond round, as he stared the exit in the face af­ter a 75.

“I thought it was top 60 and ties be­cause I’ve never been any­where near it,” said Spi­eth (below with Greller). “It must have been on 15 or 16, and I’m like, ‘It’s 10 shots off the lead and 60 and ties, right?’ Michael goes, ‘No, it’s 50 and ties.’

“And I’m like, ‘Well good thing I prob­a­bly didn’t know that.’”

TIGER WOODS WAS RANKED FIRST FOR MAK­ING PUTTS OF OVER 20 FEET IN THE OPEN­ING TWO ROUNDS AND LAST FOR PUTTS OF FIVE FEET OR UN­DER.
