COLUMN: After loss at Masters, what will Spieth do now?

proefrockThe golf world sat in shock as they watched disaster unfold for Jordan Spieth on the famous par 3 twelfth hole at the Masters Golf Tournament on April 10. Spieth, who I believed was the favorite to win (and also my favorite) lost any hope of winning his second green jacket in a row when he quadrupled bogeyed the twelve.  

Yep, a quadruple bogey. It’s rare enough to see a double bogey or triple. But that is beside the point. There has been a lot of question since Spieth’s collapse a couple weeks ago. The question is where will he go now?   

First off, the guy is 22 years old. The fact that he has won a Masters before is amazing. People are acting like he will never win again. He still hopefully has years of time on the PGA tour to win more tournaments. Spieth has a lot to look forward to, like defending his title of U.S. Open champion coming up in June, not to mention the Summer Olympics (which has golf now).

The way I see it, there are three more golf majors this year. And I truly believe Spieth will win one of them. He is halfway through the Grand Slam; all he needs is the Open championship and the PGA championship.

Losing is a part of golf. All of the greats, like Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, have lost Masters and other tournaments.  Spieth’s loss probably hurt, but chances are, he will win again.
