Jordan Spieth went almost one full year on the PGA Tour without a Top 10 finish until this past week at the PGA Championship when he finished tied for third.
It’s not uncommon for PGA players to go years without a decent finish but it seemed completely out of character for Spieth who already has three major titles on his resume. Spieth won the US Open and the Masters in 2015 as well as The Open in 2017.
Players with that kind of resume are allowed a few months of mediocre play without anybody blinking an eye in their direction because most assume they will get their game together in time for the next major. However, that didn’t seem to materialize for Spieth over the past year and his troubles became well documented.

After Spieth’s solid finish at the PGA Championship where he led the field in strokes gained putting all signs pointed in the right direction.
Spieth has continued his solid play again this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge where he was tied for second with Canadian Roger Sloan after the opening round play.
It’s still not official that Spieth is “back” but with another solid week in Fort Worth, Texas he can definitely silence many of the naysayers.
Spieth tee’s off round two of the Charles Schwab Challenge at 1:06 PM on Friday.
