Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 151 - US Open Wrap
Yet we remain compelled by his youthful exuberance and still-young career that make Spieth seem like a teenager even though he displays maturity surpassing the number listed on his birth certificate. That maturity was a vital component when things became sticky at a crusty Chambers Bay under the final-round heat of the US Open. Spieth, who led alongside contemporary Patrick Reed after 36 holes but radically outplayed his co-leader in the third round, appeared to have dodged all his US Open bullets on Saturday when two huge birdie putts dropped early in the piece but precious little fell thereafter. A 71 – his first over-par round in a major since, well, since Jordan was a boy – still gave him a quarter-piece of the lead with a day remaining. When Spieth’s normally flawless putter delivered a rare three-putt on the first green on Sunday and fellow leader Dustin Johnson kicked away three holes later, there was no sense of panic. Even when his ball-striking appeared to drop a notch on the weekend, Spieth found a way. All of which led to a survival period before a luminously bright chance shone on the 16th after playing partner Branden Grace missed the golf course with his tee shot. Spieth’s counter-punch? A curling 26- foot birdie bomb to surge clear. But just as the outcome appeared certain, the Texan tyro incongruously busted a mid-iron wide of the par-3 17th green before three- putting for a double-bogey as Johnson’s hopes were resurrected when he birdied the same hole from close range. So two men had a chance to birdie the par-5 closer to claim the title. Both hit the fairway with length and precision and both rifled second shots aboard the rippled green. Both had realistic eagle chances and both missed. From the name that’s always delivered distance through speed, comes the first fairway woods we’ve ever made with driver-like launch conditons. The name says it all.
