Golf Australia Express : GA Express 251
Spieth’s fortunes undulated almost as frequently as the Royal Birkdale terrain over the ensuing holes, but it was, of all things, a bogey on the 13th that is now destined for Open folklore. Blasting his tee shot almost 100m right of the fairway at the par-4 and landing on the wrong side of a dune in some of the thickest grass on the course, he took more than 20 minutes to secure a ruling that would allow him to call an unplayable lie, and take his third shot from the nearby practice range. Though Spieth eventually had to settle for a five, it could easily have been a seven or an eight. Finally, fate appeared to be on his side. At least a little bit. That said, you make your own luck on this Tour, and there was nothing fortuitous about the birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie-par finish that handed the 23-year-old the Claret Jug. So much for boring golf. And that Masters scar tissue? Gone. “Closing today was extremely important for the way I look at myself,” he said.
