Oh -- THERE'S Jordan's Putter!

For weeks now, we've heard Jordan Spieth answer questions about his game. "I'm hitting it pretty good," he'd say, "but I'm just not making any putts."

Well, now we know why. Some idiot took his putter to Connecticut. Who knew?

Jordan lines up a putt

The PGA Tour has asked their players to each play in one new tournament each year, to try and help the events that don't normally draw the big names. And because so many of the regular cast of attendees spoke highly of the event, Jordan and several other big names like Jason Day and Rory McIlroy decided to give it a whirl.

So in his first appearance at the Travelers Championship, Jordan promptly moved to the front of the pack with a 63, which is -7 at the TPC River Highlands course. And given that the greens there are poa annua, which isn't one of Jordan's favorite grasses to putt on... well, you've got to think that Jordan is liking that New England hospitality.

Jordan goes out early this morning, and the conditions are usually better in the morning wave at the Travelers, so maybe we'll get some idea whether Jordan really found his putter or just a very convincing imitation. But the fans are going to be thrilled no matter what happens and, based on what Jordan, Rory and Jason have said, Travelers scored pretty well themselves. It sounds like some of the big names may consider adding this event to their regular schedule.

And that's just what the PGA Tour was hoping for.
