Jordan Spieth is confident he looks forward to a US PGA Grand Slam opportunity in his career | US PGA

sCalm may arrive for golfers, angered by the Saudi themes that dominate their sport, in the form of a 28-year-old man from Dallas. should Jordan Spieth Lifting the Wanamaker Cup on Sunday night, as the Grand Slam’s career completed, there will be a compelling story to offset the constant chatter about breakaway rounds, human rights and the golfer’s unwelcome persona, Phil The Shill.

Spieth has arrived at Southern Hills, which suggests that this is his best chance yet to add US PGA The US Open and Masters Championships. He would become only the sixth man in history to win each of the Big Four in golf. To Spieth’s credit he fully embraces yet another inclination in history making.

“Certainly at this point, having won the other three, he’s an elephant in the room for me,” said Speth. “It’s a goal for me. If you just told me I was going to win one championship for the rest of my life, I would say I wanted to win this one, given where things were. If you told me that before my career I would have ever won one championship, I would say that this tournament was my favorite.” during my upbringing.

Things change, and that obviously makes a lot of sense. In the long run, it would be really cool to say that you’ve captured the four biggest golf tournaments in the world being played in different parts of the world and different styles as well. So you feel like you’re getting some kind of success in golf when you win a major championship in your career.

“I’ve come close a few times. This hasn’t necessarily been my most successful major but I’m feeling really good as this week approaches.”

Spieth won the RBC Legacy Award and was runner-up to Byron Nelson since losing a upset at the Masters Tournament. Augusta National proved himself a scratcher for the man himself. “Friday round, I fired 76 bullets and I can’t tell you I missed a bullet,” he said. “It was weird. I didn’t really feel like I made a big mistake. I’ve had weeks like this before. You just hope they aren’t in the Masters.”

By his own admission, old Spieth had sought a technical change after playing only 36 holes in Georgia. His slump after winning the 2017 Open makes his subsequent return to top golf all the more impressive.

Spieth is back in the world’s top ten, having finished 92nd in early 2021. Spieth, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have jumped to be the standout group in the championship for the first two rounds here. The trio only have 22 majors between them.

“Both are great to play with,” said Speth. “They’re fast. It’s positive. I think you should embrace it and have fun and get to know the kind of couple that I’m going to tell my kid one day: ‘I have to play Tiger in a major.'”

“Last year, I wasn’t sure if this would ever happen again. I know it’s great for golf, but it’s selfish to be able to play these things that grew up with the guy I was like.”

McIlroy’s looks and mood are positive as he seeks his first major victory since 2014. John Ram’s touch around the Greens should be a huge advantage at Southern Hills. Shane Lowry said he was “quietly confident” in his prospects of winning.

Just 98 days sitting between the last round of the Phoenix Open and the same point in the US PGA Championship. If Scottie Scheffler had won in Tulsa, he would have won five times in that window. “When I attend tournaments, I don’t feel any difference,” the Masters champion insisted.

The high temperatures, fast winds, and cross holes mean gameplay speed will inevitably be an issue. In fact, it wouldn’t be a shock if the second round broke out early on Saturday even without the weather delays. Southern Hills offers a rigorous physical exam.

As if to prove that thoughts about Saudi Arabia are never far away, Richard Bland gave a candid response when asked if he had other ideas about competing at their $25 million event in Hertfordshire next month. The European Tour will not give permission for members like Bland to appear.

“I will play,” Bland said. “If I get banned, I get banned. Most of my career is now behind me in terms of playing at the highest level. I’m 50 after six months.

“I am realistic. Mother Nature tends to catch up with you. I have a chance to play these events and secure my future and I would be too stupid to refuse it.”

Fortunately, the likes of Spieth value professional legacy over checks.
