Spieth doesn't help fatigue with Singapore jaunt

After waiting an extra day, Jordan Spieth returned to the 18th green at the Singapore Open and calmly rolled in a 5-foot birdie putt.

He offered a halfhearted fist pump. He waved politely to the crowd. He even shared a fist bump with agent-turned-caddie Jay Danzi.

But in the end, it still wasn't enough to beat the world's 204th-ranked player, Younghan Song.

The Asian leg of the Spieth Worldwide Tour has come to a close, as the 22-year-old wunderkind will now head home for a brief respite. He gave the crowds plenty of reason to cheer over the prior fortnight, and his game has shown no signs of slipping since he lapped the field in Hawaii.

The show, indeed, goes on. But at what cost?

Spieth clearly feels a sense of duty to the global game as the world's top-ranked player, and he built his early-season schedule accordingly. Of course, with that honorable obligation reportedly came a couple of seven-figure appearance fees.
