Port Washington, Wisconsin – A Charming Lake Michigan Gem.

It’s been some weeks since the PGA Championship but there was a charming little town we visited on the Saturday morning of the year’s final Major – Port Washington.

The reigning World No. 1 still has the chance of winning the FedEx Cup but in his bigger career picture Spieth learnt a rules lesson he will long remember.

Jordan Spieth Reigns The Golf World For Just 12 Days.
