Texas, United States: Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth has warned his rivals that he won’t be resting on his laurels.
The 21-year-old American has set the golfing world alight this year, following up his victory in April’s US Masters at Augusta National by winning last month’s US Open at Chambers Bay.
He is the sixth player to win the first two legs of the Grand Slam, and the first since 2002.
Furthermore, Spieth is the first player since Gene Sarazen in 1922 to win multiple Majors before his 22nd birthday and the youngest winner of the US Open since Bob Jones in 1923.
Now ranked second in the world, Spieth is preparing for the third leg of an improbable calendar year Grand Slam at the 144th Open Championship, to be staged at St Andrews next week.
And he shows no signs of compromising his commitment to preparation and drive toward constantly improving that keeps his game in top form.
“I can improve in all aspects of my game, I believe that,” said Spieth. “There’s always a way to get better.”
Not that there’s been too much wrong with his game since last November when he put the 2015 Pro V1x golf ball and 915D2 driver in play for the first time at the WGC-HSBC Champions at Shanghai’s Sheshan International Golf Club.
Between then and the US Open, Spieth played 1,300 stroke play holes in 157-under-par, breaking par in 57 of 72 rounds and breaking 70 a total of 42 times.
Asked about the overall performance of his 915 metals, Spieth said: “It’s effortless distance. It’s distance without needing to force it through your swing and therefore your swing stays consistent through the bag for 18 holes.”
