Jordan Spieth took full responsibility for his bad form that left him trophyless for the past four years and never doubted his team throughout the lean patch. Spieth resisted calls to change his team and his persistence with long-time caddie Michael Greller and coach Cameron McCormick paid dividends in the form of a victory at the Valero Texas Open.
“I think I was, I guess, humbled to an extent,” said Spieth. “I never felt like I ever got ahead of myself, I never felt like I was overly confident, but I think you get humbled a little bit.”
“It really stung when I missed the World Golf Championship, I think that was the first one that I didn’t qualify for. When there was a tournament being played that week that I was healthy and could play in and just didn’t have a spot in the tournament, that kind of hit me and it was a driving factor, I think, in continuing,” he added.
Spieth now arrives at the first major of the year as a favourite but feels he is still not playing to the best of his ability. He also said that he is not putting too much pressure on himself to become a two time Masters Champion.
