Spieth Can Win The Masters Again

Spieth Can Win The Masters Again

Jordan Spieth has played in the US Masters four times and his worst finish is tied 11th and he has finished no worse than second on the other three starts. Since 2014 Spieth has the best Augusta National form and if he is at his best he wins the 2018 Masters Tournament. The event has a history of producing multiple champions and Spieth can win his second Green Jacket in four years.


There are four professional golf majors and these are the championships that mean most. A player is judged on the number the majors won and that is why Jack Nicklaus is seen as the best player ever because his tally of 18 majors is a record. The other three majors are played on a number of course in rotation but Augusta National has staged the Masters in each year since it was first played in 1934.

For many years there were not many changes to the course but modifications were made when Tiger Woods started to overpower it. The former world number one has won the US Masters four times and has been backed from 80/1 to 16/1 to win it again. Rory McIlroy is the favourite to win the Masters and complete the career Grand Slam. Only five players have won each of the four majors at least once.

Spieth has now won the Masters, US Open and Open Championship so he needs the USPGA Championship to complete his set. With the Masters and US Open in the bag Spieth focused on the 2017 Open at Birkdale which he then won. He would obviously love to win the Masters again but the PGA is the priority. Phil Mickelson has won five majors including three Masters and his bogey is the US Open.


The overall length of the course has increased in the last 15 years, the fairways are narrower than in the past and the rough is more penal. However, the fast, undulating greens are as trechourous as before and two-putting is a key skill. The birdie opportunities mainly come on the four par 5s but the rest of the course is more about bogey avoidance than birdie conversion. The average winning score over the last 10 years is 10 under in a range from 5 under to 18 under.


Spieth won with that 18 below par score in 2015. He had control of the tournament twelve months later before making a mess of the back nine. Danny Willett took advantage to win his first major and Sergio Garcia beat Justin Rose in a playoff to break his major duck last year. The last three Masters champions were winning their first major and six of the last seven. Bubba Watson won the Masters in 2012 and 2014 and is the current WGC Match Play champion.


Spieth was having a decent Houston Open at the time of writing but may not wish to win it. Players who win in the week before a major have a poor record in the big ones. A top 10 finish would suffice as a prep for Spieth who can win the 2018 Masters Tournament.
