On May 15, Jordan Spieth finished the penultimate stage with an eagle on the 18th, par5 hole – the second time in three days competing by Byron Nelson on the PGA Tour in Texas.
Spieth came in from hole 1, scoring three birdies and no bogey throughout the first half of TPC Craig Ranch, par72. For the next eight holes, he added three birdies and two bogeys.
On the 18th, 552 yards long, Spieth hit 293 yards, then added 226 yards on the second shot. The image from the TourCast system of the Organizing Committee recorded the ball to the left of the fairway, although visually, it landed behind the green. This position is more than nine meters from the hole, but Spieth still pulls in.
“Early in the game, I put twice from outside the green. I’m not used to zoysia grass. The ball rolled slowly and hit hard, so I put a little more force when I put it on the 18th hole. Looking at the direction of the roll, I didn’t think it would come back,” Spieth said. about the penultimate battle eagle.
After this handling phase, Spieth signed a scorecard of 66 strokes, standing T3 at -17 after 54 holes and the top of the table still belonged to Sam Burns with a score of -20. Burns has held this position since the second round, on May 14. That match, Burns scored 10 birdies and no bogey. The next leg, Burns scored round -3.
Opening day 18, Spieth hit 273 yards to the left of the fairway, added 277 yards to the green on his second shot and finished with a 16.7 meter uphill putt.
However, the general statistics at Byron Nelson this week show that Spieth has “problems” with hole closing performance – 124th after the second round while the list includes 156 golfers. So, at the end of the game, he continued to practice putts, correcting his posture – spreading his legs wider and crouching closer to the ball like before.
Yesterday, the American player born in 1993 twice closed the hole with three putts, missed three times in the three-meter range, but finished 40th in this technique of the 72 people still playing at the weekend. The whole match, he reached 307 yards in two holes selected by the PGA Tour to record the average teeing distance, hit 10 of the 14 fairways and went to the green according to the standard 14 holes.
Three weeks ago, Spieth contracted Covid-19. Before the infection, he was in high form. Through eight events from February to April, he finished in the top 10 six times, including T3 at the major Masters and first place in the Texas Open. With this title, Spieth ended 1,351 days of thirst for the PGA Tour title, and joined the group of five golfers to hold at least 12 championships before the age of 28, alongside Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas.
Spieth turned pro since 2012, won three majors including Masters and US Open in 2015, The Open Championship 2017. In the world rankings (OWGR), he accumulated 26 weeks of holding the top position, currently ranked 28th.
