In a statement released by the PGA TOUR, Jordan Spieth has officially accepted Special Temporary Membership.
In its entirety, the statement reads as follows: "Jordan Spieth has officially joined the PGA TOUR as a Special Temporary Member for the remainder of the 2013 season. With a T7 finish at the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank, Jordan Spieth earned $148,893 for a total of $521,893 in four starts this season, surpassing the total earnings of the player that finished No. 150 on the 2012 money list ($474,295). He is eligible for unlimited sponsor exemptions in his attempt to earn his 2013-14 TOUR card through the Non-member Money List or Non-member FedExCup Points List. His top-10 finish at the Tampa Bay Championship also gives him an exemption into next week's Shell Houston Open." It would have been news if Spieth turned it down, but it's nice to have the confirmation nonetheless.
