Bleacher Report: Jordan Spieth's Blistering Back 9 Has Him on Verge of Historic 3rd Major of Year

HAVEN,  Wis. — The man is confident, and he has every right to be. This has been Jordan Spieth’s year, his breakthrough, his star-turn. He won the Masters in record-breaking fashion, won the U.S. Open and fell one shot short in the British Open.

And now, he has a wonderful chance to take the final major of 2015, the PGA Championship. Three out of four in a calendar year is a feat accomplished only by the immortal Ben Hogan in 1953 and prime Tiger Woods in 2000.

Bleacher Report: Jordan Spieth Will Look Back on the 2015 British Open as the 1 That Got Away

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — He was a stroke short, one swing of the 274 Jordan Spieth needed over the five days and four rounds of the British Open. This is the game of golf, a heartbreaker, because of one swing.

Three in a row, the first three majors of any year. Ben Hogan did it, won the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open in 1953. And nobody has done it since, and it's likely nobody will do it. Ever.

S.F. Examiner: Slam quest doesn’t rattle Spieth

By Art Spander
San Francisco Examiner

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Let us be the doubters, the ones who keep reminding Jordan Spieth what he’s trying to accomplish. We’ll tell him this has been done only once in the long history of golf, by the great Ben Hogan, and that it borders between improbable and unlikely — if not somewhere around impossible.

Spieth is a man apart, and man is the proper identification, not because he has reached his majority, age 21, but because he accepts the task at hand: winning a third straight major championship this year — and, lordy, maybe even a fourth — with an almost unreal zealousness.

Bleacher Report: Jordan Spieth's Swagger Shows He's Ready for the Record Books at British Open

By Art Spander

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — The confidence is subtle, demonstrated, not shouted. Yet there's no question Jordan Spieth has a belief that he can do what Ben Hogan did and what neither Arnold Palmer nor Jack Nicklaus could: win the first three golfing majors of the year.

Bleacher Report: Are Jordan Spieth's Chances to Make History at 2015 British Open Still Alive?

By Art Spander
Featured Columnist

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — His strength is putting. He said so himself. But with the second round of the British Open full of rain, wind and a tiny bit of controversy, Jordan Spieth may have three-putted his way out of a chance for history.

Eight times over 18 holes that took two days and arguably may have taken Spieth out of his quest for golf’s Grand Slam — although he disagrees—Spieth needed three putts to get the ball into the hole.
