Jordan Spieth reveals secret to gaining edge at majors

Jordan Spieth is one of the best young golfers in the world today and he took the sport by storm last year when the 22 year old won the Masters and the U.S. Open.

Last year, he showed that he can quickly jump into the lead during just about any tournament, building a nine-stroke lead at the 2016 Masters before his historic collapse on the back nine.

Spieth opened up about his play on the course when he spoke to ESPN’s Jason Sobel on Tuesday.

We get into these courses and spend more and more time dissecting,” Spieth said. “The time that we put in at a major, you can’t put in every single week. There’s just not enough time there. You’ll wear yourself out.”

Spieth discussed how he goes into any major event and looks at it as he is playing two rounds in one.

“It’s like playing 36 holes in a day, mentally,” he said. “The front nine feels like its own round and the back nine feels like its own round. There’s just more that’s going on in your head, because it’s a major.”

Now, the youngster is looking to move past his collapse at the Masters so he can be competitive at the upcoming major events. He will compete at the U.S. Open, which opens with Round 1 play on Thursday.
