Jordan Spieth is a former world number one who has won three of the four Majors, only missing a US PGA Championship. He has one FedEx Cup to his name in 2015, the same year he tied the 72-hole record set by Tiger Woods at the 2015 Masters and became the youngest US Open champion since Bobby Jones won in 1923.
Widely regarded as America’s ‘golden boy’ of a new generation, in 2016 Time magazine named Spieth to its list of the "100 Most Influential People", noting that he "exemplifies everything that's great about sports."
Jordan won his first PGA Tour title at the 2013 John Deere Classic, however, it was 2015 where he really made his name, winning the Valspar Championship, John Deere Classic, Tour Championship, Masters and US Open. He won the 2016 Tournament of Champions then the Dean & Deluca Invitational. In 2017 he added wins at Pebble Beach, Travelers Championship and The Open. He also has two wins in Australia – the 2014 and 2016 Australian Open.
Jordan was winless between 2018 and 2021 and came very close to slipping outside the top 100 in the world. However, he bounced back in 2021 and is now over that slump with win in Texas and Hilton Head since.
Jordan became a father at the end of 2021 and has already won in 2022 since.
Pressure Performance Analysis
With 13 wins on tour, Jordan has won and lost from just about every position possible. He was rock solid in contention for his 3 major wins, however, since his poor form he has been mixed when in contention. For now, his Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at ⭐⭐⭐.
❌Trailed Xander by 3 shots at the Scottish Open and shot 72 to finish five back.
➖ Began the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson 1 shot behind Munoz. Shot 67 to finish 2nd, 1 shot behind K H Lee who shot 63.
✅ Began the final round of the RBC Heritage three shots behind Varner and shot 66 to reach a playoff with Patrick Cantlay, where he won with a par. Birdied his 72nd hole to reach playoff.
➖ Began the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach 1 shot behind the leaders and shot 69 to finish 2 shots back of winner Hoge. Was favourite with a couple of holes to go but finished bogey-par.
✅ Went into the final round of The Open Championship 3 shots behind leader Louis Oosthuizen. Jordan would go on to shoot a 66 to move up from 3rd to 2nd.
❌ Began the final round of the Charles Schwab Challenge 1 shot ahead of Jason Kokrak. Shot 73 to lose by 2 shots, a poor performance.
❌ Three shots back at the AT&T Byron Nelson, Jordan could only shoot a 71 (worst score of anyone in the top 15) to slip from 3rd to 9th.
➖ Jordan was six shots back (7th place) at the Masters. He played the first six holes in +2 and was never in it even if he did shoot a 70 and rise to 3rd.
✅ Tied for the lead through 54 holes at the Valero Texas Open, Jordan shot an excellent final round 66 to win by two shots. A much improved performance in contention.
❌ Began the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational 2 shots behind Lee Westwood. Shot 75 in tough conditions to finish 5 shots behind DeChambeau, another disappointing effort.
❌ Jordan held a two shot lead going into the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Was over par through 6 holes and only a couple of closing birdies brought him under par for the day. Slipped to 3rd.
❌ Began the final round of the Phoenix Open joint leader with Xander Schauffele. Shot 72 (previous worst score 67) to finish 2 shots behind Koepka. A very poor performance.
❌ Began the final round of the Charles Schwab Challenge 1 shot behind Xander Schauffele however shot a one over par 71 to finish 4 shots behind winner Daniel Berger. Also held the lead midway through rounds 2 and 3 and looked shaky once he took the lead.
❌ At the Memorial Tournament, he entered the final round 4 shots behind Martin Kaymer. He appeared rusty that day with a 73 to finish 9 shots behind winner Patrick Cantlay.
✅ Finished 3rd at the PGA Championship however he started the final round 7 shots behind Brooks Koepka so was very much playing for 2nd, albeit with a solid 71.
❌ Open Championship, which he led by 1 shot after 54 holes. That day he fell apart, shooting 76 which was the worst score out of all the leaders by two shots, seven more than eventual winner Francesco Molinari.
In 2017, Jordan won back to back tournaments at the Travelers Championship followed by the Open Championship. The other win that season at Pebble Beach came after form figures 9-3-3 in the three weeks prior. He also posted two consecutive 2nd places at The Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship. In 2017, Jordan had back to back third place finishes and in 2019, he went on a run of 3-8-7. Jordan seems able to maintain a big performance the previous week and take that competitive edge into the next one so look to back him when in form.
Events to back Spieth
AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
A past winner of this tournament (2017), Spieth has a rock solid record in this Californian event. In eight attempts he's only finished outside the top 21 once.
Charles Schwab Challenge
There are no prizes for originality with this one but Jordan simply has to be considered when the Tour stops at Colonial CC. Finishes in the last three years alone have been 2nd, 10th and 8th. Add in a win in 2016 and it's hard not to factor him into your thinking.
AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, 2019
“It's (Spyglass Hill) one of my favourite golf courses that we play all year. I love Spyglass and I think my love for it has allowed me to play well year-in and year-out on this course. Whether I play the other two well or not, I seem to have success at Spy.”
Northern Trust, 2019
“Michael told me when we finished the round -that's probably the least Jordan golf course that we play all year. And I agree, it's probably one of the worst tracks for my game.”
PGA Championship, 2019
“It's the same reason the last five or six years, my best finishes are in the majors. We pick a plan to peak for the majors........I knew coming into the week that it was unlikely on this golf course that I was going to have a chance to win, and that's a humbling feeling for me, but I knew that if I played the course the right way, had the right mentality, kept putting the way I've been putting, that I would be in it”
Open Championship, 2017
“I felt once I lost my lead completely and we were tied, I actually felt the nerves go away for a few holes until I got the lead again. And then they were back. And it's just kind of powering through that. You just don't know really what your mind is going to do to you sometimes. You can control it to an extent but certain situations are going to bring more tension and you have to kind of channel that the right way, play the right shots."
