So it was really a very unique round for this year. It doesn’t fit me very well particularly, but I’ve also won on courses that I didn’t think fit me very well. Jordan Spieth tees off at the 10th hole during the first round of The Barclays at Plainfield Country Club.
- Playing for the first time as the world’s No. 1 player, Jordan Spieth played like he didn’t belong in the top 100. If he doesn’t do a 180, he won’t be No. 1 for long.
- At times impatient, unfocused, overly aggressive and a little rusty with his wedges, Spieth, who holds a huge lead in the FedExCup standings, looked nothing like the player who has won two majors and two other tournaments this year and overtook Rory McIlroy to become the world’s best with a runner-up finish in the PGA Championship.
- After a first round 74 at the RBC Heritage, he rebounded with a 62 in the second.
