It's a rough tournament, Bryson in his post round interview mentioned he was lagging because of not managing his energy correctly over the course of the four days.  

Spieth has proven himself, now he has to approach golf as a seasoned professional who makes better decisions about the tournaments he plays in and make the most of each tournament he enters.

I agree but also love his response to questions about it.  He doesn't regret his early year schedule, it allowed him to see the world and he promoted the game across the globe.  I've always admired Els for doing the same and I admired Tiger for his annual Asia pilgrimages.

I think they have learned a valuable lesson, however, and I'd expect him to cut his schedule down considerably next year, while keeping a few of those overseas tournaments on the calendar (esp the ones that pay him $2MM to appear).

Agree.

 

Fame is both rewarding ... and punishing. Celebrity appearances and corporate outings take a toll on any major winner - it's a race for more $$$, but it does have its costs, and this year, the price of fame was probably the cost of a Masters.

I hope so. He needs to be fresh for the Majors. I think that will help him.

Imho, what Spieth needs right now is a good long lazy vacation, no press, no media, no hangers on, etc...

soooo true, 5 days on some private island with the pretty little thing he has been with since HS...cloths optional...he will be fine!! cost him less the 50k to do it right and he will be back work before he missed - all cleared up!

Jordan picked up some ground on #1, would have overtaken with a W.

Looking more like a Big 2, opposed to 3 or 4.  Day and Spieth separating from the pack.

Rory losing ground, he's closer to #7 than to #2.  He needs a win.

Jordan needs to learn more than a few lessons from the Masters. He is in such a privileged position that to see him almost blubbering to reporters post final round like some poor injured puppy was a bit embarrassing.

Hes already won 2 majors within a year when things did go his way so he has to accept that sometimes they don't and just get on with it.

Some players come so close so many times in majors but never get across the line, Westwood/Monty for example. I don't recall seeing either of them crying about it afterwards.

The fact of the matter is that it would have been a travesty had he won this Masters in my opinion. Had it been a chipping and putting competition then yes he absolutely should have won but this wasnt a chipping and putting contest and he wasn't even close to being the best golfer of the week.

He stood there and answered every question asked of him for several minutes honestly and in detail after suffering one of the worst collapses in majors history.  I am not really sure how much better he could have "sucked it up."

I hope this isn't true but I tend to agree with you.  I think he will win more majors but its so tough and he absolutely choked this one away.  Who knows he could still win 2 more this year but I wouldn't bet on it.

Pure Spieth envy and absolute BS.  Spieth didn't "almost blubber".  He answered openly and honestly, as he always does and for that he gets criticized; it's just mind-boggling.

He wasn't the best golfer last week, but he was 2nd best, which is in fact, VERY, close to being the best golfer of the week.

Not a good reflection on you Jodie (or are you also a copycat of a 70s/80s pro golfer)?

Yes 100% spieth envy. Like millions of golfers around the world I would absolutely love to be Jordan.

His post round interview was embarrassing,  pure tears in his eyes sympathy seeking nonsense. 

Children  are dying everyday around the world and he just lost a game of golf.

Poor Jordan,  purrrrrrlease 

Give me a break

His post meltdown interview was brilliant,he really held it together.If it had been me at 22 years old I'd have been throwing beer bottles.

I hope it doesn't affect him too much,after all he's still very young.All eyes will be on him during his next tourney..hence the media will be having a feeding frenzy...cnunts!!

I remember what Trevino did to Tony Jacklin back in the 70's,more or less,finished his career.

Obviously a poor troll attempt, what does children dying have to do with any professional sports.  Do you make the same type of post when a football team loses the Superbowl or baseball team loses the World Series and they are upset with the loss?  

If you ever competed in real sports you'd know how difficult it is to lose in the manner Jordan did.  I thought he handled the interview well and was sincere in his words and emotions.

He is located in Bangkok, so I would guess no.

    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
    • Yeah yeah but hey it gets better lol    USA have won 3 of the past 12 !!!!!   25% when I went to school, but you’ve conveniently forgot about that. Europe let you win so you keep coming back lol…
    • Lesson 9/25: Some bad things had crept into my swing, and I think I have the tools to fix them. Setup: I was setting up a little to close to the ball. Not sure what precipitated this, but as soon as instructor pointed it out, I stepped back maybe 1/2 to 1 ball and right away addressing the ball felt more comfortable. I've started fidgeting with my right hand grip at setup again, resulting in an overly strong right hand. This seems to happen when I stand over the ball too long, maybe because I am not committed to the swing. Worked on increasing grip pressure with this hand through backswing. I'll need to work on this. Backswing: Need to get a little more depth, but otherwise okay. Might have been I was focusing too much on downswing that I short changed backswing. Nothing major to work on right now. Downswing: Clubhead exit was too much up and out, and not enough left. Worked a bit with a PVC/pool noodle plane thing in front of the ball to get a feel for the clubhead exiting more around and left, and less up, after impact. Might pick up some PVC pipe, elbows, and a tee-fitting at a hardware store, or maybe order a Pure Plane Pro device for this. Everything in the downswing looked pretty good up until club delivery, where I was shoving/flipping my right hand pretty hard. Right before delivery, clubhead was in a good position, but I was still shoving/flipping it closed through impact. Tried out a feel/thought of holding the face open through impact. Initially instructor just had me try to hit the ball with an open face and hit a push-slice way right. Even though it felt like I was leaving the face wide open, the ball was not atrociously offline right. After a few balls of getting used to the concept, I backed off the feel a little bit and was hitting the ball pretty straight. It'll take some work to deprogram my right hand/arm for this one.
    • You are correct, Titleist has really upped the distance on last years TS models and even more so on this years.  The older ones always carried the moniker of being for people who were concerned with shot shaping over distance.  Now a days if you want to sell a driver, distance seems to be the number one concern and it’s good to see Titleist jumping on the bandwagon because they make nice looking driver heads
    • My understanding of "links" is that many people have a different set of criteria. I guess I agree that Chambers Bay and The Kingsley Club are not true links courses. When I hear the term it brings a vision of natural seaside dunes, sandy soil, fast, firm with weather often in play, and options to play the "ground game". Chambers was created by necessity; there is no sea or Great Lake near Kingsley; but both courses offer the same style of play along with most of the other features, and are a blast to play every round.
