Jordan Spieth Commits
For Immediate Release: January 19, 2023
Three-time Major Champion Jordan Spieth is returning to the Valspar Championship for
the first time in five years.
Spieth has committed to Tampa Bay’s PGA TOUR event which will be held March 13-19 on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort. He won the Valspar Championship in 2015, the second of his now 13 PGA TOUR titles, capturing a thrilling three-hole playoff with a birdie on the 17th hole. He last played on the Copperhead in 2018, but since then circumstances – including the cancellation of the 2020 tournament to which he was committed – have prevented his return.
“We are thrilled to have Jordan return to the Copperhead,” says Tournament Director Tracy West. “He is certainly a fan favorite here in Tampa Bay, and we know our patrons will be out in full force supporting his return to our tournament.”
Spieth will be seeking the career slam in 2023 at the PGA Championship in May. He won his first Major at the 2015 Masters, just a few weeks after his win at the Valspar. He also won the U.S. Open in 2015 and the Open Championship in 2017. In 2022, he won the RBC Heritage for his 13th PGA TOUR title.This will be Spieth’s 6th appearance on the Copperhead, dating to a 7th place finish in
2013. He has finished in the top 20 in four of the previous five.
Spieth will be among the pros attempting to deny Sam Burns, the winner in 2021 and
2022, a three-peat. Other early commitments include 2013 champion Kevin Streelman,
2023 Sony Open winner Si Woo Kim, Stewart Cink, Harry Higgs, Joel Dahmen and Brian
