As the golf world prepares for the Women’s Amateur next week at Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis, Mo., many will assume there will be a teen who makes a run at the championship title. Last year, that was Erynne Lee.
Jordan Spieth said yesterday that he was “just chillin’’ at the U.S. Junior, but he was doing far from that in his round-of-32 match against Jack Perry, the 99th-ranked player in the Golfweek/Titleist Junior Rankings.
U.S. Junior Amateur experience doesn’t always translate into U.S. Junior Amateur success. That was apparent on Wednesday when players who once enjoyed the glory of advancing deep at the event were upset in the Round of 64.
