The Jordan Factor: Spieth victory at John Deere does big rating for CBS

I know I hurried home Sunday to watch Jordan Spieth in the John Deere Classic Sunday. It seems as if other golf fans did the same.

Spieth’s victory did a 2.8 rating on CBS Sunday, up 133 percent from the 1.2 for the final round in 2014. It was the highest rating for the John Deere since 1999.

The rating peaked at 4.1 during his playoff with Tom Gillis.

Seem to recall another golfer who used to have a similar impact on the ratings. What was his name again?
