It’s not uncommon for many professional golfers to skip events the week before a major. For others, it’s never an issue teeing it up with a major championship approaching.
But how often do players follow a win with another, on an even bigger stage?
Jordan Spieth attempts to join that small fraternity at this week’s Masters and become just the fifth golfer to win at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia after winning the PGA Tour event that preceded the major championship.
Only two golfers have done it since 1960, and it’s been 15 years since anyone pulled it off. Special thanks to stats guru @JustinRayGolf for the info.
