One unintended benefit of the COVID-19 pandemic on the golf world is that almost every tournament since golf returned last June has been more loaded than its previous iteration. This week’s Phoenix Open is no different with five of the top 10 players in the world playing (even with a handful of the top 10 going overseas to the Saudi International where appearance fees flow like milk and honey!).
Unfortunately, this terrific field at TPC Scottsdale will not be greeted by the normal masses that fill up the grounds every February, but it’s still a benefit to those of us watching at home with absolutely loaded featured groups and coverage from Thursday morning up to kickoff of Super Bowl LV on Sunday evening.
Despite all of that, the fans were at full throat on Saturday as they watched Jordan Spieth dazzle around the course for a 61 to grab a share of the lead with Xander Schauffele heading into the final round on Sunday. It’s the first time Spieth has had a share of a lead since the 2018 Open Championship as he has struggled mightily over the last three years. But now, thanks to one of the best round of his career, Spieth is in the thick of it once again with a chance at his first win in a long time.
Here’s how you can do just that along all week.
