Spend your weekend grinding in San Antonio trying to win the prestigious Valero Texas Open or go down to the Bahamas with your boys and get sloshed at Baker’s Bay, ripping shots while catching some rays? Yeah, not exactly a tough call.
What a squad. Jordan with his fresh plugs trying to drink away the memories of 12 the best he can, Rickie making up for lost time for all the parties he skipped at Okie State, and Justin Thomas going a week without be referred to as “Jordan’s less successful friend.” Biggest vacation winner here has to be Smylie Kaufman, though.
All I knew about this dude was that he drove a 2008 Nissan Murano and was still living at home with his mom and pops. Jim Nantz made sure to drill that into our brains at the Masters. Now, from the looks of this Snapchat, dude is cashing in on both his personal brand (what up, Rovell) and actual coin. You just know Spieth — who is sneakily becoming the new degenerate gambler on tour, following in the footsteps of Phil Mickelson — is throwing around Ben Franklins like monopoly money each hole and Smylie is taking advantage of Jordan’s “case of the hooks.” A potentially huge payday for the LSU alumnus.

Back to Rickie. Would you by shocked if he just partied his way off tour in a few years time? Kid had a notorious rap for avoiding all of that in college, but now he’s starting to let loose. I’ve seen this movie before, and it usually ends with some shy, confused, coked-out Arizona State co-ed on a leather couch with a somewhat fearful look in her eyes as she sees her innocence wilt away under a face full of semen. I don’t anticipate Rickie’s wild streak to go down that road, but you never know..
