JORDAN SPIETH SWING ANALYSIS
If I were asked to describe Jordan Spieth’s golf game in two words, I would say ‘refreshingly boring’. Why? Because the standard of his entire game is so high yet no particular facet screams out as being spectacular. You’ll never see him launching his every sinew of muscle at the ball in an attempt to crunch a 350yd drive. Nor will you ever see him hitting his wedges so hard that an unknown amount of backspin will take effect upon landing on the green.
At Augusta most players decide that to score well on the par 5s overpowering them in two blows is the best option. This year Spieth opted to play most of them as three shotters, confident that by doing so his formidable wedge play would result in short birdie putts and therefore not lose him ground on the rest of the field.
A wise man once said “work hardest on your weaknesses not on your strengths”. Spieth doesn’t appear to have any flaws in his game but I guarantee he will have identified some.
His greatest strength? Easy, it’s the five inches between his ears. Kudos should go to his parents for nurturing him into the mature and humble character he has become at only 21 years of age.
Failing injury, Spieth will retire a multiple major winner.
