Fresh off Rickie Fowler's victory at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, the golf world is again abuzz over the "Big 3" or "Big 4" or whatever you want to call your new world Nos. 1-4 in the Official World Golf Ranking - Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Fowler.

While we're still trying to figure out what to call them, Jordan Spieth has a label for the three 20-somethings trailing him in the rankings: old.


A good-natured jab by the 22-year-old Spieth fresh off a win in Maui two weeks ago and a fifth place finish at Abu Dhabi. Call the fearsome foursome whatever you want, let's just hope they keep the wins coming in 2016 and beyond.
