Jordan Spieth Fetches Pretty Price in Dallas Country Club Calcutta

Welcome, friends. It is that time of the year again.

Jordan Spieth just teed off at the Masters. You know who is super interested in how he plays today? The Dallas Country Club member who paid $140,000 in that club’s Calcutta auction. Total purse, I’ve been told, is $2 million. I’m told that Dustin Johnson went for $180,000, but after his “fall,” it’s still not clear whether he’ll play in the tournament. He is scheduled to tee off at 1:03 Dallas time.

P.S.: Apologies in advance to my co-workers, who will have to suffer through my distractedness as my eyes are glued to my iPhone, which, via the free Masters app, will be streaming live video of the tournament all day.
