Two majors down with 2 to go.
Jordan Spieth heads to the Open Championship next week with the chance to win his 3rd straight major. He won the Masters in convincing style and got a little assist from Dustin Johnson in the U.S. Open.
Now it seems Rory McIlroy, the world’s #1 and betting favorite in the Open Championship, will also assist Jordan’s in his quest for the next major. Rory’s ankle injury, injured while playing soccer, will keep him out of the tournament and quite likely the PGA Championship.
With Tiger’s game not ready for prime time yet Jordan’s quest for 3 majors in a row at St Andrews is starting to look plausible. And if that happens the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits becomes “the tournament of the century” as Jordan attempts to win the calendar Grand Slam.
As we all know in sports, luck, timing, circumstances and fate often determine the outcome. Just recently the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the skies has created what is called a super-star.
This bright phenomenon may have been what was known as the “Star of Bethlehem” in 3-2 B.C. That’s 2,000 years ago!
Sometimes things just align perfectly.
