After Further Review: Race to a Slam

Each week, takes a look back at the week in golf. Here’s what’s weighing on our writers’ minds.  On the three-way chase for a career Grand Slam: With three players now one leg away from the career Grand Slam, expect Jordan Spieth to be the first of the trio to round the bases. Spieth might not win next month at Quail Hollow, but he’s ideally positioned to lift the Wanamaker Trophy sooner rather than later and clearly is able to conjure magic on a major stage. Phil Mickelson’s window to win the U.S. Open has likely closed, while the lengthy lead-up to the Masters doesn’t help Rory McIlroy’s cause. The PGA’s position on the calendar, whether in May or August, should shorten the

Spieth silences his doubters – including himself

It wasn’t Jean van de Velde standing in the burn at Carnoustie, but it was no less outrageous – Jordan Spieth perched atop a dune glaring into a cold rain. Although Spieth was trying as best he could to see a line to the 13th green, and minimize the damage of a drive that ended up closer to the practice tee than it did the fairway, he may as well have been watching the claret jug slipping away into the gloom. Van de Velde went on to lose that 2006 Open in spectacular fashion, whereas Spieth’s finish was even more remarkable and completed a wire-to-wire victory that was far more eventful than anyone could have imagined just 24 hours earlier. “Give me a round number,” Spieth shouted to his caddie Michael Greller from atop the hill adjacent to the 13th fairway.

Jordan Spieth won The Open after his caddie saved his butt on the wild 13th hole

Jordan Spieth went on an epic run on the final five holes to win The Open Championship, but it may have never happened if not for his caddie saving the day on the wild 13th hole. At No. 13, Spieth hit his tee shot about 100 yards to the right of the fairway. While Spieth had a much cleaner lie in the practice area, his shot to the green was completely blind and his own calculation of how far he was from the green turned out to be way off.

Spieth’s legend forged by stunning Open resurrection

The intensity of a final-day battle at The Open Championship can produce pressure so ferocious it forges greatness. Last year’s spectacular Sunday showdown between Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson did just that. There were times when Spieth’s round was hard to watch, and others when it was harder still to believe.

Golf fans go into total meltdown after Jordan Spieth’s bizarre 13th hole

I’ve been watching golf a long time — almost all my life — and I’ve never seen anything quite as strange as Jordan Spieth’s 13th hole. During a round that saw Jordan Spieth leaking oil for most of the day, losing both a three shot lead and two shot lead at different points in his round, Spieth hit his drive so far right that it flew off the hole and onto the driving range. He eventually took an unplayable, and spent the next 20 minutes or so running around like a madman, looking for a spot to drop his ball, sending golf fans on Twitter into a meltdown. He made a bogey, then, in classic Spieth fashion, almost knocked-in an ace on the next hole en-route to a birdie.
