Spieth Goes With Spoon, PGA Ends Slam

JORDAN SPIETH AND CADDIE MICHAEL GRELLER star in the above "This Is Sportscenter" spot. According to Jason Sobel, it was real mac and cheese and Spieth "really ate a mouthful of it with every single take."

In other news, the PGA of America has discontinued the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, an annual 36-hole event with a very exclusive field -- the winners of golf's four majors. Here's what they said:
After carefully evaluating the PGA Grand Slam of Golf over the past few years and studying how this event fits with today's golf landscape and the PGA of America's long term strategic plan, the PGA has decided to discontinue the event. 
When the PGA Grand Slam of Golf was launched in 1979, the golf world was much different than it is today. The PGA Tour's wrap-around schedule, the European Tour's Race to Dubai, plus other important international events, make the fall schedule very busy and hectic for the top players in the world. 
It had also become challenging to attract fans, television viewership and media interest. While we have enjoyed staging the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, given those many factors, the timing is right to discontinue the event.
