Jordan Spieth isn't blinking in the face of history

10 August 2017

Marc Leishman is hoping to top off his best season on the US PGA Tour with a breakthrough major title at this week's PGA Championship.

Spieth says the biggest challenge will be taming the 7,600-yard North Carolina course, with thunderstorms and rain forecast for the next four days. "But it's nearly like if we don't win ... we're free-wheeling".

"I'm definitely not going out there to try to prove anything to anyone".

Cloudy, warm Wednesday with a chance for thunderstorms
Make it a great day! Scattered storms will linger through the evening and gradually dissipate by early Wednesday morning. Currently, Franklin has maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and is tracking westward at 13 miles per hour .

Woods completed this in his renowned 2000 season when he won by eight (yes, eight!) shots at The Open in St Andrews.

Many eyes will be on Jordan Spieth to see if he can make history by winning this week to complete the career grand slam, but there are many holes that will need to be played before any real conversation about that can be had.

The 2009 Irish Open champion admits the back-to-back disappointments last month left him feeling under pressure to rescue something from his summer. "But I believe I'm going to have plenty of chances, and I'm young enough to believe in my abilities that it will happen at some point". What's asked and what's published is ultimately what the public ends up thinking. And even if it's good or bad, I can accept that myself and I alluded to it last week, as well. Secondly, what our teams thinks. "There's some golf courses you go to that give you that feeling. that's sort of how it feels here."I think once you go back to a place where you do have great memories, all that starts to come flooding back to you and it makes you feel good about yourself". Kuchar, who also shared fourth this year at the Masters, has nine top-10s in majors without a victory.

Stocks down, gold up after North Korea threat
While the UK's FTSE 100 Index slid by 0.6%, the German DAX Index slumped by 1.1% and the French CAC 40 Index tumbled by 1.4%. At the close of trading in NY , the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 33.08 points, or 0.15%, to 22,085.34.

Still, it was different, if not odd, watching Jim Furyk practising bunker shots wearing shorts and seeing Dustin Johnson chilling in the interview room with bare legs. If Day's putter can get hot like it was over the past two seasons, he could be in line to win his second major. Before the Masters, he was coming off his third straight victory. There was no return to form a week later, as he again missed the cut - this time in Ontario. He fell behind early at the British Open.

This change will cause a shift in golf's major championship calendar. This is PGA's own event and it generally attracts most of the Top-100 players in the world. My health is pretty much where it needs to be.

"The last 48 hours we have had over an inch of rain and it's softened the course certainly more than we would want, but golf is an outdoor sport and it is what it is", said chief championship officer Kerry Haigh, who is in charge of the course set-up.

It's wild to see the sets with fighters in armor on horseback sharing the frame with all the gear required to film the scenes. But if she doesn't seem happy, this photo of a miserable Tyrion shows just how hard this carnage was for him personally.
