Jordan Spieth’s 2017 schedule will look a little different than last year, with less time spent traveling overseas. However, he’ll kick off his year in the same way as 2016, in Hawaii for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
Spieth will be at Kapalua for the resumption of the PGA Tour season at its winners-only event, which he won last year by eight shots. The 23-year-old won two PGA Tour events during the 2015-16 season, adding in the Dean and Deluca Invitational at Colonial for his first PGA Tour win in Texas.
Then Spieth will continue on to the Sony Open in Hawaii, before playing in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Spieth will be in the field at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He is sponsored by AT&T after all. He will also be in the Genesis Open (formerly the Northern Trust Open), where he had a top-five finish in 2015.
Spieth should also be in the WGC-Mexico Championship and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in his home state of Texas. He’ll likely be in the Shell Houston Open ahead of the Masters. He’ll go through a big stretch with The Players, AT&T Byron Nelson, Dean & Deluca Invitational at Colonial and the Memorial Tournament. Spieth also surprised when he entered with fellow Texan Ryan Palmer to play in the Zurich Classic with its new two-man team format, played April 27-30.
Of course, Spieth will have the four majors and the remaining World Golf Championships on the schedule. We should see him in all four FedEx Cup playoff events and on the U.S. team for the Presidents Cup in September.
Spieth should also be back in Australia in November to defend his Emirates Australian Open win, his third worldwide of 2016.
