Golf’s final major is happening later this week. The Open Championship or British Open will be taking place in Ireland starting Thursday. One of the players that will be playing is Jordan Spieth. Spieth has won the Open Championship before back in 2017. He has struggled the last couple of years on tour. Spieth has gone through swing changes and coaches. He won so frequently when he came on tour and at one time was the number one player in the world.
Last month at the US Open Spieth struggled. He got into a fight with his caddy over a shot he hit. Spieth was paired with Sergio Garcia. He became impatient and hit ahead of Garcia who was behind him. A rule in golf the player that is further from the hole plays first. When Spieth played his shot, Garcia looked back at him. He made par for the hole.
These are the incidents that have pondered golf fans alike. The question is what is going on with Jordan Spieth? If some of you don’t know golf is a mental game. If a player loses it upstairs, it hard to play. With his swing changes and coaches, it will be hard. He will have to find himself again.
This week is not a week for him to try and get it back. Playing in Europe is completely different than in the United States. It is tougher because of the conditions higher rough and wind. Spieth will struggle. He needs to find a way to get out of his current mental mood. If not, he will miss the cut and have to ponder what his future might hold. He won this tournament two years ago. He was playing well then and for some reason, he decides to make changes. Let see how he does the week. Hopefully, he can get back on track.
How will Spieth do? Leave a comment below.
