Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 154 - The Open preview
SOMETIMES there’s nothing better than to be proven wrong. It was only a few months ago that I wrote that Rory McIlroy, at his best, was untouchable. McIlroy plays to his potential, he wins. Simple as that, I preached. The world rankings might still provide a sound footing for that argument, but the picture has changed. Jordan Spieth is making fools of all of us. At the John Deere Classic the 21-year- old showed that to be the best, he doesn’t even have to play anywhere near his best for the whole four rounds. He just needs a couple of good days to put himself in the equation, and his now almost inevitable Sunday surge will take care of itself. After watching that final round of the US Open, his career-low round of 61 at the John Deere Classic and his entire week at Augusta, there’s mounting evidence that a ‘good’ day for Spieth might just be the best of which anyone is capable. And now he’s training his sights on St Andrews and the Open Championship. It’s a bridge too far to say the Open is the final frontier for the Texan as he chases world domination and the No.1 world ranking. WORDS BY ADRIAN BALLANTYNE
