Why Jordan Spieth’s Next Tournament Is Crucial For His Career

For a man that had the chance at winning three consecutive majors, you would think that Jordan has played his most important tournaments of the year, but this may not be the case…

Spieth has caught a run of poor form, missing two consecutive cuts, and unable to break 73 in four rounds. A dry spell like this wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for an average golfer, but Spieth is far from average.

With this slow performance at the end of the year, it could remove Spieth from contention for the Player of the year Award, which he looked certain to take at the start of the year.

After a poor showing at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Spieth had a few words to say about himself:

“I had really bad self-talk this week, something I haven’t experienced in quite a while, Maybe heightened by just everything that’s happened this year, and just being so used to being in contention, that not only was I out of it, but I was also outside the cut line. And maybe it just heightened my self-talk. I need to walk with some cockiness in my step these next two tournaments.”

Spieth’s next start is at the BMW Championship, which comes off a much needed week off. It will be very interesting to see how he handles the tournament, and if he can regain his confidence and return to his winning ways.
