Jordan Spieth tour moves to Singapore

January 26, 2016

Jordan Spieth's worldwide golf adventure continues this week at the Singapore Open, where he says the weather reminds him a bit of his home state of Texas.

Spieth arrived in Singapore on Monday after an eight-hour flight from Abu Dhabi, where he finished tied for fifth, five strokes behind winner Rickie Fowler in the Abu Dhabi Championship, and said he was exhausted.

Spieth arrived in the Middle East after an eight-shot victory in Hawaii, which followed his 2015 season when he won two majors and the FedEx Cup title, and reached No. 1 in the world.

Over the past two months, he's also played in South Korea at the Presidents Cup, China, in Sydney where he unsuccessfully defended his Australian Open title, and in the Bahamas.

''This was just a unique off-season,'' Spieth said at a media conference Tuesday. ''I'm extremely excited to be here. I was very tired on Sunday from a long week there. By the time we start Thursday, I'll be ready to go with four full days of my best stuff.''

Spieth spent nearly a half-hour waiting for his luggage at Changi Airport on his arrival, but said he spent Monday ''resting, just laying low trying to catch up on sleep, strength and hydration from the long trips.''

''I don't mind the heat and humidity, I'm used to it from Texas. It's a bit of a hit at this time of year.''

After the Singapore Open, which will be played at the Sentosa Golf Club, he'll return to the U.S. to play at Pebble Beach pro-am and the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles in February.

''I was unlucky in the spacing of the tournaments,'' Spieth said Tuesday. ''And that's what kind of led to this crazy four-month adventure that we've had.''
