Clearly he’s too tall for golf. He should try shaving a couple inches off and see if that helps.

Hitting a 6 on 17 was ridiculous. Him and his caddie were the only ones on the planet who thought otherwise.
Spieth will forever be held hostage by 2015. Hes playing better golf, just needs to be able to put 4 rounds good rounds together.
I think Jordan showed some positive signs for about 2 and a half rounds last week. His putting on intermediate length putts seemed to be coming around and only missed a few short ones. His iron play looked solid at times and his scrambling was really impressive. Driving seems to be a big issue which I'm sure he will work out.
The passion of Jordan's fans is second to only Tiger and maybe Phil. At Pebble the gallery for DJ/ Jordan was huge, almost Tigeresque. If you see Jordan live he has a real positive vibe. He smiles and makes eye contact with people and kind of bounces around, always moving, just very likable.
With that being said when he started play in Hawaii he was quoted as saying he hadn't picked up a club in sometime and felt strange even swinging a club. I think he got married in the off season and of course that's going to put your focus in other directions. When you have so much success early and the benefits that go with that it's hard not to get distracted.
So when I see all the threads on Jordan it's simply because people want him to do well and want to relive the past success that he's had. My issue is that does he care about that as much as all his fans do? At this point in his life my answer would have to be No. Jordan and Rory are very similar not in their golf games but in their likability and success but also similar in that their drive to be the best is not at an elite level, at least not at this time.
Maybe when people stop comparing Spieth with Tiger and Jack they wont make such ridiculous threads. Spieth is fine and playing like any top 10 golfer. They gave good and bad weeks/months/years.
