Will Jordan Spieth Come Back?

Spieth isn’t struggling because he’s having to hit 6i into the green when his competitors are hitting 8-9i. His ball striking and putting just hasn’t been good especially on the weekends. It’s gotta be frustrating. I think, and this may be wrong, but he’s been saying ‘ it’s coming around’ for many months now....I don’t see it.

At least 11 months 😭. He was on NLU podcast last spring saying that. Anyways.... it’s still Friday, he’s only +5...nah I’ve moved passed denial early this week.

Next stage of grief is anger. What the hell was that iron shot yesterday that found the middle of the water!? 

That was the first time I really thought like...maybe he won’t be a super star again.

 But where are these awful shots coming from?! Does anyone have an opinion of why these shots are happening? Like is his swing degrading?

He hit a shot on a par 3 with a pond on the right of the green, and hit it so far right, he almost missed the pond. As a 4 handicap, it would have been a terrible shot for me, let alone a guy on Tour. I know those guys hit bad shots, but with an iron, teed up, and it wasn't a shank, I couldn't believe he missed so badly. The announcer really didn't know what to say. I'm not good enough to say what he needs to do to get back to playing well, but it seems that what ever he's doing now isn't working. He seems like a good guy, and I'd like to see him return to form.

I agree and have said in the past...I really wish he’d just go see a new instructor. I know instructors can tell me it’s not the instructor...fine I get that, but when it’s this off ya gotta start exploring all you can. Call it a mental reboot or whatever. I wish he’d go see George Gankas. Plenty of top players change coaches. I hope he’s not feeling sappy emotions for McCormick. Whatever he’s ‘working on’ isn’t working.

Just curious as to why him for Jordan?

The videos I’ve watched with him working with the young guys...I think he’s got a demeanor that would get through to him. I like how he communicates. Let’s face it, Spieth is a bit of a pansy. And although I’ve conceded McCormick is a knowledgeable guy...he’s a pansy too. Spieth needs boot camp, not a head tassel and a ‘ you’ll get it back sport!’ attitude.

Lol. Well I expected a much more scathing response from you with that. But that’ll do.

How much longer are his exemptions from his majors good for status on tour?

Winning The British Open gives you a 5 year exemption to like everything. So through 2022?

Plus forever at Masters and until he’s 60 at British Open since he won them.

Im sure he gets something for his top 3 at the PGA last year, but my answer is prob close enough

When I look at Spieth I can't help but think of David Duval.  For that reason, who knows if Jordan comes back.

I did find this article from a couple of years ago...

This is exactly what I mean when I say that if you're at the top of your game, just keep doing what you're doing and don't listen to anyone about changing anything.  And for heaven's sakes, don't chase after getting more distance if you're winning a lot.

What did Jordan try to change?

He just started hitting the ball more poorly than his other-worldly form of 2015-2017.
