T HE upshot of Spieth’s success is that he’ll start next month’s PGA Championship with the chance to enter the history books as the youngest player ever to achieve a Career Grand Slam. With Masters, US Open and Open Championship titles already in his keeping, it’s likely only a matter of time before he wins a PGA, and it would see him join Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as the only players to have won all four majors. Doing it next month would carry him past Tiger as the youngest man to have managed the feat. Spieth was quick to distance himself from comparisons to those legends of the game, but the thought of being considered amongst that illustrious company can’t have escaped him. “In no way, shape or form do I think I’m anywhere near that, whatsoever,” he said. Despite his protestations, if he manages to win at Quail Hollow, on that score he’ll move past all of them. As Rory McIlroy said after finishing fourth at Royal Birkdale – having won three majors by the age of 25 – he expected he might have added a couple more in the three years since. But opportunities are fleeting, and majors are more elusive than ever. Spieth’s time is now. E THE IMMORTALS: Only five men in history have claimed golf's Career Grand Slam. They are (L to R) Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.
