Underdog makes a case

So much for the underdog.

Sure, top-ranked Jordan Spieth reached the finals of the U.S. Junior, but Jay Hwang is proving there is no such thing as a favorite in match play.

Hwang, who hasn’t even played enough events to be listed officially in the Golfweek/Titleist Junior Rankings, is all square with Spieth after the first 18 holes.

Just as Tiger Woods lost to Tim Clark in his comeback at the WGC-Match play earlier this year, Hwang is going toe-to-toe with the seemingly unbeatable Spieth.

We’ll see what happens in the second 18.
