Spieth confident his game is getting back on track
Four-time Major winning Jordan Spieth reckons his game is heading in all the right directions ahead of teeing-up in tomorrow’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Spieth has not tasted victory since his sensational, and very dramatic, victory in the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale and the newly-engaged Texan would dearly love to get another win on the board this season.

“I’m not going to chase them [wins] as hard as I tried to, maybe force or chase them last year because you can get hurt doing that,” Spieth said. “You can get into some bad patterns.”
I’m in a good place right now. I feel like my game’s trending the right direction. Sometimes that means results are coming soon. Sometimes it means they’re coming later. But they’re coming,” said Spieth.
Indeed, Spieth has not had a top-10 finish since last year’s Open at Carnoustie and with the former World No. 1 currently ranked 21st in the rankings – his lowest ranking since his 22nd placing at the start of the 2014 season.
He tees-up this week having shared 35th place in his last start two weeks ago at the Farmers Insurance Open.
“It’s about how do I improve to get myself into contention this week and then what do I do next week and just staying very present and recognising the longevity of a career,” Spieth said.
“Your career is not defined by a couple bad years. I had an off year last year. And I could have really poor years the rest of my career and still have a pretty fantastic career.”
