Spieth heads the bill in Dallas as “dizzy” Day withdraws

WORLD No.2 Jordan “Slothie” Spieth heads the bill this week at the US PGA Tour’s AT&T Bryon Nelson at the TPC Four Season in Texas, with Jason Day a late withdrawal.

Spieth (for an explanation of the “Slothie” bit read this Larry Canning piece) finished tied second last week and the local experts reckon he has gotten over his little US Masters winning “hangover” and will be back in the winner’s circle real soon.

Day was a former winner here and was a strong favourite but after feeling dizzy spells during Wednesday Pro-Am returned home to Ohio to consult with doctors. He wants to get things right before next month’s US Open.

Day withdrew from last year’s World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational with vertigo but that was linked to medicine side effects from a thumb injury.

That leaves the Aussie contingent in Dallas consisting of the in-form Marc Leishman, recent Web.com Tour winner Rod Pampling, John Senden, Matt Jones, Geoff Ogilvy, Cameron Smith, Greg Chalmers, Aaron Baddeley, Robert Allenby and Cameron Percy.
