Spieth returns with claret jug, confidence high
Strong field awaits at Bridgestone before first shot at career Grand Slam.
Jordan Spieth is one week away from a shot at the career Grand Slam. He’s more interested in looking behind him. Spieth returned to Dallas with the claret jug, and it wasn’t more than a few hours before he already had watched highlights — twice — of his British Open victory at Royal Birkdale. The first time was when he couldn’t get to sleep. Then, caddie Michael Greller woke up and they watched it together.
It was no less amazing, from the bogey he salvaged with a shot from the practice range to the birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie streak that followed.
And it gave Spieth a chance to set the record straight on Wednesday.
He playfully disputed the notion that he was 100 yards right of the fairway on No. 13, as television commentary suggested.
Spieth aimed for the right rough on the 13th hole
Jason Witten is one of just two tight ends in NFL history with at least 1,000 catches and 10,000 yards receiving. Tony Gonzalez, formerly of the Chiefs and Falcons, is the other.
