SPIETH WENT FOR IT SAFELY

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

On Sun­day at last year’s Masters, out in the 15th fair­way, Jor­dan Spieth had a fiveshot lead. He looked at the long carry over wa­ter to the par 5. “If I go to the hy­brid, it’s prob­a­bly too much club, but it’s not in the wa­ter,” he said later. “But if I miss a 4-iron, it could very eas­ily go in.” He hit the hy­brid, which flew past the pin and rolled off the back. His up-and-down birdie clinched his first ma­jor win.
