Jordan Spieth’s 101,000 Klms Journey To Six Nations In 11 Weeks.

When Jordan Spieth returns home to Dallas, Texas he would have travelled some 101, 000 kilometres in the past 11 weeks.

Speith’s whirlwind around the world golfing journey commenced the first week of November when he travelled to Shanghai, China for the WGC – HSBC Champions where he finished T7th behind Scotland’s Russell Knox.

Jordan Spieth's six nation and 13 week journey started the first week in November in Shanghai.

Since then returned home before he journeyed to Sydney, Australia, and one of the longest non-stop flights in the world, for the defence of his Australian Open title. ¬†From there it back home and albeit briefly ‘change of clothes’ before jumping aboard another flight to the Bahamas.

Spieth spent Christmas at home and then kick-started 2016 winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

From the Pacific Ocean washed Hawaiian Islands Spieth found his way to the desert sands of the United Arab Emirates to contest the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

He then journeyed also for a first time to Singapore where earlier today he finished one shot shy of forcing a play-off with Korean Younghan Song in the Asian Tour’s Singapore Open.

Little wonder Spieth remarked in Abu Dhabi he was ‘tired, very tired’ and that he would be seriously looking at his end of 2016 schedule and not undertaking the amount of travel he’s undertaken in the past 13 weeks.

And perhaps the all the travelling finally began taking it’s toll on the 22-year old who remarked after having to return to the course to play just one hole: ” I made some poor decisions in the middle two rounds as I was trying to do a little too much. But overall, it has been a great experience and I had a really good time here.”
