The Slide of Jordan Spieth
Date Published: April 8, 2019 by Rob Rose
Jordan Spieth found himself in early contention for last weeks Valero Texas Open, finishing tied for 3rd place after round 1. Sadly it did not last as the mistakes of the past twelve months crept back in over the weekend.
Spieth finished the tournament in 30th place, again outside the top 25 and again suffering a world ranking drop as a result. This ranking slide has been gaining momentum since last year’s Masters Tournament as our graphic below shows. The reasons for this slump can be found in our ‘Key Form Stats’ section. His fundamentals are in freefall.
Can he turn it around for the Masters? His record there suggests anything is possible. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
