The Jordan Spieth roller coaster is in full effect here on Saturday. It's more bad than good, but this is what you get from the fella when he's on the ropes. Absolute magic. Double bogey on 7 be damned, you can't keep Spieth down. That's what the Spieth roller coaster is all about.
The clip above (and the CBS broadcast) didn't do the entire experience justice. If you were watching the Featured Groups coverage online, you first saw Jordan wandering deep into an area of Augusta National that I had no idea existed. Then you saw him walk the 100 yards or so up to the green and evaluate the terrain. On the walk back to his ball, he kept looking up at the sky, trying to figure out what sort of window or what sort of height he needed to clear the trees and somehow get out of jail. It was shades of Royal Birkdale in 2017 when he and his caddie Michael Greller traversed all of the 13th hole (and the driving range) to try to figure out how to turn crap into diamonds. And whaddya know it, Jordan pulled it off and buried the birdie putt. Major bounceback to keep himself from falling further out of the mix.
The Jordan Spieth Experience. Nothing like it.
