Spieth won the US Open today on an ugly course that was ripped by many golfers for its terrible greens. The loser, Dustin Johnson, 3 putted the final hole to give Spieth, the Masters Champion, another major.
Three weeks ago I began my amateur quest to become the best points golfer the world has ever seen. Three lessons later I am ready to leave the 9 hole course and tackle some great ones all around the world. Armed with a used set of Wilson clubs and stellar confidence, I am scanning Citi’s golf portal for where to play this entertaining yet infuriating game.
Early winners include courses in Phoenix and San Diego though many of the courses abroad intrigue me as well. I’ve written about it before but sports and travel go hand in hand. The benefit of having the Citi Prestige card is 3 free rounds of golf per year (more if you are abroad) which totals to 6 rounds of golf before the annual fee comes due.
The only obstacle I face is rationalizing checking in my beloved golf clubs versus renting some from the local course.
