Golf community adds fuel to injured Jordan Spieth’s suffering with brutal predictions: ‘No Slam This Year’

Jordan Spieth has been dealing with his come-and-go wrist injury for a while now. As a byproduct of the ulnar nerve damage he suffered during the 2023 PGA Championship, his ECU tendon became dislocated, resulting in ‘stand out’ sometimes. Unfortunately, he experienced the same thing at the current PGA Tour event, the Wells Fargo Championship, and fans were quick to pass judgment on it.

The golfer was in his second round of play of the day at the Quail Hollow Club in the sixth signature event on the 2024 calendar on the men’s circuit. But as soon as he hit the ball off the tee on the 12th hole, he turned to the person standing next to him and exclaimed: “(It) really hurt.” Well, Spieth’s tendon seemed to have loosened again, causing him a lot of pain and discomfort.

Continuing, the athlete also talked about how he would only be down for a day if it happens, while he would be able to play golf the next day; “I was strangely able to make a wrong turn when I came off the ground, and I couldn’t play tomorrow.

Is Jordan Spieth’s Grand Slam in Danger?
