The Northern Trust Open is a firm booking for Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. Both of the stars are confirmed competitors in the Californian competition next month.
The Northern Trust Open will welcome the pair to the completion. Chairman and chief executive officer Frederick H Waddell is thrilled that two such high profile players will be included in the line-up. He is particularly happy to have Rory McIlroy making an appearance on the Northern Trust Open field for the first time.
The Chairman admitted that the event will be fantastic this year, with McIlroy, world number one Jordan Spieth and a multitude of young strong players ready to tee it up at Riviera. The competition should certainly draw in the crowds.
McIlroy is very also excited to have the Northern Trust Open in his schedule for the first time ever. He openly admits that he has heard many positive things about the tournament, as well as the exceptional quality of the course.
The twenty six year old paid tribute to the many legends of the game that have played and won at the iconic venue throughout history. In a press release he said that he is really looking forward to visiting LA and experiencing Riviera for himself.
Having played in the Northern Trust Open previously, Jordan Spieth is no stranger to the course. During the tournament last year Spieth spoke of how much the tournament means to him. He has described the course as one of the greatest in the world and believes that he owes the event that helped him on the way to be the world number one.
The twenty two year old added:
“It was a great experience getting the PGA Tour start that then helped our team win the NCAA Championship that year. We got some good insight on pin locations and how it would play. It’s dear to my heart.”
