Tiger Woods spent his weekend coasting to a win in the WGC-Cadillac Championship, his 17th in the elite WGC series.

Meanwhile former Longhorn Jordan Spieth turned in a pretty good weekend of work a well on the PGA Tour. The 19-year old got a sponsor’s exemption into the Puerto Rico Open, and on Saturday, he recorded his first hole-in-one as a touring pro.

Then on Sunday Spieth fired his fourth straight round in the 60′s (67) to to finish in a tie for 2nd in the official tour event.

Spieth had rounds of 69-66-67-67 for a 269 total and a check for $308,000. Jordan is a member of the web.com tour, but can take up to 7 sponsor’s exemptions on the PGA tour. Spieth won $65,000 at the AT&T Celebrity Pro-AM, which means he has already won $373,000 in 2013. The Top 125 money winners for the year get a full exemption for the next season, and Spieth looks to be more than halfway to the earnings he will need to get his PGA card.
