Jordan Spieth Keen To Make His Mark At The Open Championship
Following his victory at the John Deere Classic, Jordan Spieth is now looking to keep the momentum going into the open Championship. Although he had a slow start he finished in blistering form.
It is that form that Spieth is hoping to maintain. He may want to start a little quicker, but with that said he knows he has the ability to compete with the best of them.
One area he will be looking to improve is his driving. Early on in the John Deere Classic Spieth encountered a few problems, which I’m sure he will want to iron out. He said he will be spending time working with the long clubs to give himself the best of chances at the open.
SILVIS, Ill. – The golf world may have spent the last two weeks debating whether Jordan Spieth would be better served in Silvis or Scotland, but for all the second guessing and all the unsolicited advice, here’s what Spieth had to say Sunday with the John Deere Classic trophy sitting on a table in front of him:
“I really didn’t care anyways. I came here for a reason, and we accomplished that reason, and certainly I’ve got some momentum going into next week.
“[After] starting off so slow, to be able to shoot 20 under in three rounds is obviously nice momentum.”
As if he needed any more momentum coming off two major victories – or any more motivation. Spieth enters next week at the Open Championship with the opportunity to win his third consecutive major, the third leg of the Grand Slam and the No. 1 ranking in the world.
Of course, before he could get on the tournament charter to St. Andrews, Spieth had the small matter of closing out his 54-hole lead at TPC Deere Run. And through the first 12 holes of his final round, it looked as if that wasn’t going to happen.
