Former World No 1 just wants to get over Masters
MIAMI the 23-year-old Texan is looking forward to the time when he is no longer asked about his implosion.
“No matter what happens at this year’s Masters, whether I can grab the jacket back or I miss the cut or I finish 30th, it will be nice having this Masters go by,” he said ahead of this week’s World Golf Championship-Dell Match Play tournament in Austin, Texas.
“The Masters lives on for a year. It brings a non-golf audience into golf. And it will be nice once this year’s finished to be brutally honest.
“It would be best if I could reclaim the jacket but I believe I’ll be back up there sooner or later because of the way I play the golf course, the success I’ve had and the comfort level I have
The Masters lives on for a year. It brings a non-golf audience into golf. And it will be nice once this year’s finished to be brutally honest.”
“Whether it happens this year or not it will just be nice when it’s over, because that tournament, it’s a 365 day thing. There’s no other Masters.
“I won in Colonial three starts later. So as far as affecting me when I’m in a tournament, I think that answer is clear, it doesn’t do that.
“But as far as just having all the questions be done, I’m pretty sure they will be.”
World No 3 Jason Day is backing Spieth not to be unduly affected by last year’s Augusta collapse when he returns to the course next month.
“He’s young enough and talented enough that it won’t even affect him,” Day said.
“Obviously, it hurt and stung at the time. But I think he’s done pretty good with his career thus far, and I think he’s going to have a lot more opportunities to win Augusta, green jackets and other major championships.
“It goes in there and kind of sits around in your head a little bit but sooner or later it kind of goes off and you’re done with it.” AFP
