‘Hate For Them to Be Disappointed’: Pressure Mounts After Jordan Spieth’s Painful Setback as PGA Tour Pro Makes an Honest Confession

Golf fans were in for a disappointing surprise this week as Jordan Spieth announced his withdrawal from the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament. The announcement comes just days after he missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship.

It seems, however, that Spieth’s absence will also affect another PGA Tour pro. On Tuesday, golf pro Michael Kim took the 3-time Major winner’s slot at the upcoming event. And soon after, he took to Twitter to relay his worries about it!

PGA Tour pro Michael Kim takes Spieth’s slot after his injury

The 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson tournament will kick off on May 11 at the TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. The likes of Scottie Scheffler, Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama, and more will be headlining the event. Reigning champion K.H. Lee is also set to return to defend his title.

One big name who will be missing from action is none other than Jordan Spieth. He had earlier taken to Twitter to update fans about a wrist injury that had rendered him incapable of playing at the event. The news didn’t just disappoint his supporters;it has also put remarkable pressure on golfer Michael Kim.

Kim, who took the injured golfer’s slot, is now hoping for the AT&T Byron Nelson event organizers to update the pro-am list. After all, it would be a huge challenge for any golfer to take the place of the fan favorite, 13-time PGA Tour winner.

On Wednesday, the TPC Craig Ranch will host a pro-am event where amateurs will be paired up with top PGA Tour pros from this year’s field. The event’s first round kicks off on Thursday, with defending champion K.H. Lee hoping for a third consecutive win.
