His short game sim­ply has no peers

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR TIPS -

Jack Ni Nick­laus, by his o own ad­miss ad­mis­sion, was never a g great wedge p player and it took Ti Tiger Woods sev­eral sea­sons on Tou Tour to de­velop the bun bunker play and short g game skills that he would come to rely on in win­ning many of his 14 ma­jors. Spi­eth, how­ever, al­ready has a wide range of re­cov­ery shots at his dis­posal. He’s a pre­cise and deadly pitcher and has sub­lime touch and se­cond-bounce spin con­trol around the greens – skills he has demon­strated most im­pres­sively in nav­i­gat­ing the sharp run offs and un­du­lat­ing greens at Au­gusta Na­tional.
