Spieth piling up wins at rate not seen since Tiger Woods

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Winning has come so quickly for Jordan Spieth that even at age 23, he wondered if he took it for granted. He got some perspective from a victory Sunday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am that was dull as it was dominant. Few walks up the 18th hole are more enjoyable than Pebble Beach, especially with the sun gleaming off the Pacific and the sound of waves on the shore. It’s even better with a four-shot lead, with nothing left to do but hoist the trophy. Spieth’s four-shot victory after closing with a 2-under...

Spieth wins a stunner at Chambers Bay for US Open title

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) — Jordan Spieth is halfway home to the Grand Slam, a prize only three of the biggest names in modern golf have ever chased. And he still can’t believe how he got there. Spieth won the U.S. Open in a heart-stopper Sunday with a turn of events even more wild than the terrain at Chambers Bay. He thought he had it won with a 25-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole. He threw away a three-shot lead one hole later. He made birdie on the final hole. And then he thought it was over as...

Spieth, Reed share US Open lead at Chambers Bay

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. (AP) — Masters champion Jordan Spieth is halfway home from the second leg of the Grand Slam. It sure feels a lot farther away in this U.S. Open. Spieth overcame a double bogey on the par-4 18th hole that he called "the dumbest hole" he has played, and a scary moment when Jason Day collapsed to the ground Friday on their final hole at the par-3 ninth from what was later diagnosed as vertigo. Spieth managed to make his birdie for a 3-under 67, giving him a share of the lead with Ryder Cup partner Patrick...

Spieth dominates a Masters that shows golf in good hands

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Jordan Spieth never really suffered. Certainly not like Phil Mickelson, who came close so many times before finally winning his first major title. Yet, not long after Spieth slipped on the green jacket at age 21, the second-youngest champion in the history of the Masters, he pondered what pushed him to one of the game’s greatest performances. There was that runner-up finish in the 2014 Masters, when he had a two-shot lead with 11 holes to play but faded to a runner-up finish behind Bubba Watson. A fine showing, indeed, for someone so young playing...

Spieth goes to final round of Masters with 4-stroke lead

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — This is becoming routine. For the second year in a row, Jordan Spieth will be playing in the final group at the Masters on Sunday. Only now, it will be a big surprise if he doesn’t leave with a green jacket. Spieth has already set Augusta National scoring records for 36 and 54 holes. He joined Tiger Woods as the only players to reach 18-under par at the venerable course. If not for a double bogey at the next-to-last hole Saturday, he would have gone to the final round needing only to avoid an epic...
