Cape Town - Jordan Spieth cuts a conflicted figure these days as the Texan ponders his win drought.
The last time Spieth enjoyed Sunday silverware was at Royal Birkdale
in 2017, where a tumultuous final round saw him beat out Matt Kuchar
to the Claret Jug. It was his third major triumph and
his confidence was flying high.
But in 2019, not so much.
When asked where is game was at ahead of The
Open Championship at Royal Portrush, his answer did not inspire his
"Not anywhere near where I want it to be," quipped the 25-year-old.
But that does not necessarily put him out of contention this week.
Last year, he was in the mix for two of the majors.
His 64 in the final
round of the Masters saw him finish two strokes behind winner Patrick
Reed and at The Open, he started in the final pairing but finished four
behind eventual champion Francesco Molinari.
All this despite not playing his best golf...
