With his Masters victory three years ago, Jordan Spieth, like Phil Mickelson, has a spot at Augusta for life, but unlike Mickelson, Spieth’s recent play has been mostly underwhelming, and his form does not look Masters ready.
However, the world No. 4 is the highest ranked player in the Houston Open field, and has plenty of reason to be confident.
“Not the start that I’ve wanted so far, but I would like to think that the season kind of starts next week. You put a lot of emphasis on peaking for four weeks a year and that first one comes at the Masters,” said Spieth on Wednesday at the Golf Club of Houston in advance of this week’s Houston Open.
“Trying to obviously have a fantastic event here, which is the best way to gear up for that.”
