Spieth listed as favorite entering weekend of Hero World Challenge

  Spieth listed as favorite entering weekend of Hero World Challenge While Tiger Woods was melting social media Friday with a third-round 68, Jordan Spieth quietly moved himself into contention at the Hero World Challenge. Spieth is tied for second at 9-under with Tommy Fleetwood, but enters the weekend as the favorite to win the event with 5-2 odds. The 36-hole leader, Charley Hoffman, is next at 3-1, followed by Justin Rose slotted at 6-1 and Tommy Fleetwood at 8-1.Woods, who's tied for fifth at 7-under par, comes in at 15-1.

The green jacket is the most sought-after attire in sports. And yet, owning that magnificent garb doesn ' t prevent its wearers from fashion faux pas. Just ask Jordan Spieth .

Speaking with the Associated Press' Doug Ferguson, the three-time major winner admitted he doesn't know his jacket size. An issue that reared its head following his 2015 Masters triumph.

“I never got it tailored, so it’s huge,” Spieth said to Ferguson. “I never trusted anybody, never wanted anyone to go do it. I didn’t give them my size originally. I wore the one off the green that day, and I never gave it back to them to tailor or anything."

Column: Defining shots based on every club in the bag

  Column: Defining shots based on every club in the bag Some of the defining shots on the PGA Tour this year were hit from the tee and fairway, from the bunkers and behind trees, and even from the driving range.Two of them effectively clinched a first major. One of them introduced another young star.One way to look back on 2017 is through every club in the bag. The shots weren't necessarily the best, but they helped shape the year.DRIVER: Moments after Dustin Johnson made a birdie putt to force a sudden-death playoff at the Northern Trust, he effectively ended it with one swing . CBS analyst Nick Faldo pointed to a bunker beyond the right side of the lake on the 18th hole at Glen Oaks as a target for Johnson's powerful fade.

Jordan Spieth ' s Masters green jacket doesn ' t fit as the jacket is too big and the Texas lad doesn ' t own many fancy clothes. Asked for his jacket size, Spieth wasn’t sure, only that it was somewhere around a 40. There’s a reason he doesn ’ t know.

Masters Champion Jordan Spieth wears his Green Jacket after winning the 2015 Masters. Jordan Spieth was born and bred for what he did Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club. The greatness was in the cradle.

As Ferguson notes, Spieth doesn't know because, well, he doesn't own many jackets. For this year's Presidents Cup, Spieth had to go to Justin Thomas' Polo account to get a proper ensemble for the event.

In Spieth's defense, not many 24-year-olds know their jacket size. Conversely, given his sterling track record at Augusta National, he should probably get a fitting session on the calendar.
