Jordan Spieth has become an afterthought on the PGA Tour.
Even at the course where he usually plays so well.
Adding another entry to his yearlong slump, Spieth struggled to a 3-over 75 Thursday in the opening round of the Masters and was a whopping nine shots off the lead. Not exactly the sort of start he was looking for at a major championship that he won in 2015, where he’s twice been a runner-up and finished third another time, a big reason he calls it “my favorite tournament in the whole world.”
Up to now, Spieth’s worst showing at this place was a tie for 11th in 2017.
Making the cut is his main priority at the moment.
