Jordan Spieth: I think I've been booted out of Tiger Woods' group chat

Jordan Spieth believes United States Presidents Cup playing captain Tiger Woods has likely made a fresh new group chat for his team given he no longer receives any notifications from his fellow Americans. 

Spieth failed to make Woods' team after enduring a wretched run of form by his own high standards in a season that saw him pick up just five top-10 finishes.

The three-time major champion is now winless since lifting the Claret Jug at the 2017 Open Championship, and despite having once spent 26 weeks as World No.1 in 2015 has now fallen to a lowly 44th in the rankings. 

It's also seen him fall out of a couple of group texts, or so he believes. 

"I'm probably out of a lot of group texts," said Spieth, speaking during this week's Hero World Challenge, hosted by Woods.

"All those guys in Florida play all the time together, so I don't even know - it might all be the same group text. 

"But it sucks because there are always good banter on those, and I always liked the lead-in and the playing practice rounds together, preparing to be a team representing your country. It's tough."

He added: "When it’s being played without being there, that’s when I’ll probably be like, man, I took it for granted."

Spieth, who had played in three consecutive Presidents Cup matches since 2013, claims he is so disappointed to not make the side that he will likely not even watch the Presidents Cup unfold between United States and the Internationals at Royal Melbourne next week.

"I'll try and honestly just get away while the tournament's going on because you never want to miss those events when you've kind of been a part of them for a number of years," said Spieth.
