Jordan Spieth : The Masters and The Players Leader, Staying Focused
About a month ago, 20-year-old Jordan Spieth was in the top leading the Masters and The Players during the final rounds. “It follows that he was asked Wednesday at the HP Byron Nelson Championship if he considered talk of his being golf’s “next big thing” as a burden or compliment.”
“Demonstrating maturity beyond his years and being consistent with past behavior, Spieth again showed he thinks it’s important to block out external factors. This will serve him well if he stays the course.”
“I don’t even hear it,” he said. “I don’t view it as either one. I’m just here to get on the first hole and try and win a golf tournament. … That kind of talk, it doesn’t do good to pay attention to either way.”
“McIlroy has won two majors by eight strokes apiece and can dominate more with his driver, but Spieth has a chance to outdo him because he putts and scrambles better.
Check back in 25 years. That’s 2039. Spieth will be 45 then.”
