Jordan Spieth, man does this guy do anything wrong?
00:14
I mean even in defeat, classy as can be.
00:17
He hung around to cheer on Zach Johnson.
00:21
He gave Zach Johnson a big hug afterward.
00:23
He had a chance to win three majors in a row,
00:26
up until the last hole.
00:28
Most guys fold completely under that pressure,
00:30
and he was right there to the finish.
00:32
I don't think what happened at St Andrews
00:34
is gonna bother him one bit.
00:35
I think if anything, he should be encouraged
00:37
that he didn't have his best stuff.
00:38
He three-putted five times in one round
00:40
and he was still able to contend.
00:43
If you think of all the things
00:44
he really messed up at St Andrews,
00:45
his putting inside of 10 feet was disastrous,
00:48
yet he still was there at the end of the day.
00:50
Still he has an opportunity to win
00:52
a third major in a calendar year
00:54
and join Woods and Hogan as the two
00:57
only other players to have done this.
01:00
Still having an eye on history,
01:02
is going to motivate him.
01:03
Jordan only cares like what's in front of him.
01:06
I don't think he gets hung up
01:07
on things that he could have done, but didn't do.
01:10
He's a guy with no regrets.
01:12
He's a forward thinker.
01:14
This is still a truly historic season.
01:16
It could go down as one of the all-time great seasons,
01:19
maybe the best season ever
01:20
if he's able to win at Whistling Straits.
01:22
He can draw only confidence from that experience.
01:24
And I think he's mature enough to know that
01:26
and to not let that last hole be the end of him.
