And 2023 hasn’t lost a step on the subject.

To review, Spieth mostly stayed above the fray. In early July, his shared social media channels a note that quelled rumors that he was in talks with LIV, the upstart, Saudi-backed series that begins its second season next month, and that he supported the PGA Tour, the series he has supported for more than a decade played professionally. The next day, after the Scottish Open third round, Spieth repeated himself. And that’s about it.

But then reporters asked him about his RV, his new transportation for this season.

It all started Tuesday, in Spieth’s pre-Sony Open press conference, when he dished on where he would stay for next month’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, which is played the same weekend as the Super Bowl. On Thursday, after the Sony first round where Spieth shot a six-under 64, he shared more about the accommodations for him, wife Annie and 1-year-old son Sammy.

“Just to believe, you know,” Spieth said. “Snooze it. Should be a lot of fun. The reason was kind of to have a house on the road. Got the same mattress I have at home, and we’ll leave a lot of Sammy’s stuff on the bus, so we won’t have a whole load of gear and can ride it a lot between events, given the way the West Coast swings – and especially the Florida swing. Should make traveling and getting settled and packed up quite a bit easier.

“Yeah, looking forward to it. I’ve stayed in it once.”

At the CJ Cup last fall?

“That’s right.”

What are the dimensions?

“I don’t know the measurements,” Spieth told a reporter. “Yes, and if I did, I don’t think I would tell you. It would be like just giving you a tour of my house, I guess.”

Has he driven it yet?

“I didn’t manage it. I plan on driving it on an open road stretch at some point when it’s not pulling out of Phoenix and not into LA, but maybe switch and do like an hour just because it would be fun.”

Who is driving it?

“We’ve got a manager, yeah, a guy who’s done it for some other guys.”

Was there someone who inspired him to buy it?

“We tried one, and Harding Park PGA, so we tested it out there. Annie wanted one for a while. I didn’t really want one before Sammy, like knowing he would sleep through the night and schedule and all that because tight quarters compared to renting a house.

“So she’s wanted one for a while, and it was just a matter of the perfect one coming along at the right time, and it did last fall.”

What had to be perfect about it?

“Just like one that — I mean, it’s not a minor purchase, one that we really liked, the style that wasn’t going to require a lot of maintenance, that we had the right driver situation, the right space. The way they’re all built is different, so it just had to be the right rig.”

However, Spieth was also asked what it was like to stay in it.

And he had an LIV connection.

And here’s how you tie up an RV and the threat to the PGA Tour.

“I was there alone [at the CJ Cup] so I had tons of room, and we haven’t uploaded it yet,” he said. ‘We just got it in. Yes, it will be fun. There’s a number – at one point, I think there were a dozen guys, four of them went to LIV and sold theirs because they didn’t really have the whole swing. It’s hard to go Saudi to Chicago in a two week time in an RV.

“I think it had a lot to do with it. But I don’t know.”
