Nope -his game went south right after he got married as well. Hmmmmm is there a connection? Inquiring minds want to know 🤣.

Interesting and the first time I've heard about it - anyone else?  As high profile as Jordan is, he must have a pretty airtight circle around him for this not to have been outed.

I think it was a bone chip resulting from the wedding ring being too tight!!!   🤣  Or the newly married status causing him to be so stressed out his grip on the golf club rivaled the bite strength of a crocodile and bones shattered as a result!!  🤣🤣

I was thinking the same thing, his struggles have been well documented and have been the subject of speculation by TV commentators so I’m really surprised that this injury never came out.

Maybe he was afraid he would turn into the next Anthony Kim

For whatever reason it didn't come out, a hand injury is obviously no small thing for a golfer.  I can remember many commentators talking about an increasingly week grip...now we know why.  Imagine trying to play golf at that level and you can't even grip the club how you want to.

If it's truly cleaned up it's all the more reason to be bullish on his potential return to top form.  I can't wait to see him at Augusta...there was a time he was very much a horse for the course there.

Never heard anything about an injury to JS. Usually something like that is Front Page news.

Wonder why he didn't want the surgery. Maybe the outcome wouldn't have been 100%? Lot's of athletes have bounced back from surgery - most recently Jessica Korda so there had to be something 'there'.

This is common to a lot of sports.  Player gets injured, starts trying to compensate and soon loses all form.  Hope he is 100% now.

Two takeaways from the article.  First, the loyalty of the people in Spieth's inner circle is fascinating.  For this not to get out before he wanted it to is a testament to that loyalty.  Good for him and good for them.  It's rare in this day and age to find such loyalty.  Especially considering the social media age in which we live.  Second, the "Spieth needs to fire his whole team" camp looks pretty stupid right now!

You know, this is just another example of why I have lived my life dedicated to not exercising. Dangerous stuff, exercise.
