‘It Was Pretty Ugly’: Jordan Spieth Willing to Risk it All Despite $3,150,000 Glory Standing Out of Sights Due to Injury

Jordan Spieth has been having a tough time in New York. Despite playing through pain in his wrist, he was able to make the cut at the 105th PGA Championship. During his third-day game, Spieth almost took an unexpected decision that would have left the golfer’s career glory hanging for one more year, but fortunately for his fans, he didn’t go through with it!

In his recent interview with Golf on CBS, Spieth revealed his huge decision and the big reason behind why he didn’t go through with it! What do you think it is?

Despite the horrific weather conditions, which perhaps further aggravated his wrist injury, Spieth qualified for the weekend and found himself in the 42nd spot at the end of the third round. A huge reason why the golfer could be putting himself through this stress is because he’s chasing his career grand slam, for which he only needs a PGA Championship win.

And despite that massive dream to join the elite cohort of grand slammers and the week’s huge $3.15 million award, the 29-year-old was ready to turn his back on it all, thanks to his injury!

In an interview with Amanda Balionis that was shared by a Twitter page, Golf Injury Report, Spieth opened up about the woes of his hurting wrist coupled with the complexity of the course. “It was pretty ugly,” he said, talking about his thoughts about walking away from the much-coveted Wanamaker Trophy. “It was pretty frustrating. I potentially thought about packing it in, but took a couple of Advil.”

Amid talking about his potential withdrawal, the golf pro added that he was surprised with how well he was able to get the ball onto the fairway and shed light on the many scoring opportunities on the course that he would have been able to manage better if his wrist was not injured.
