You know Jordan Spieth has made it into the pantheon of PGA Tour superstars when his whining about course setup forces the powers-that-be to cave into his demands.
The expectation was that the hole would play as a par-5 on Thursday and Saturday, and as a par-4 on Friday and Sunday. After his third round, Spieth was asked about the likely par-4 finish on Sunday. He reiterated his distaste for the move and said one option he was exploring was playing it up the adjacent 1st fairway. That was another preemptive power move, because surely the USGA did not want one of its leaders and possible champion playing the final hole of its most prestigious championship up another fairway because of the setup.
