Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson skipped the Olympics for an “awesome” day together

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”

Well, apparently the Olympics moved to fast for DJ and Jordan Spieth. There is no doubt Spieth will regret his decision after watching his bud Rickie enjoy himself in Rio.  Matt Kuchar spoke about his pride and the general consensus was that Olympic golf had been a success.

But what about Jordie and DJ?

DJ said the trick to fooling the International Olympic committee was to “fake a stomach cramp, moan and wail, lick your palms.” Plan set in stone, the day could begin.

What’s so different about Ferris Bueller’s day off and Jordan’s decision to skip Rio? Both involved a slight lie, both required planning and deception. Which do you think ended better?

Ferris Bueller finished his day tucked up in bed, whereas these two must be feeling slightly out of favour.
