How Jordan Got His Groove Back

Today's post is short but it's incredibly important.

Jordan Spieth

When Jordan Spieth came roaring back into contention with an 8-under 62 -- tying his own personal best score since coming on Tour -- to get himself on the RBC Heritage leaderboard, he attributed it to one simple thing. As he told the media (and recorded in this article):
“(I) found something in my ball position on the range this morning, and it made a significant difference in my ball-striking and in my putting,” Spieth said in a classic example of understatement.
When he spoke to the media he noted that he went out for Thursday's round without checking his fundamentals -- alignment, ball position, posture, etc. -- and that he found the ball position problem when he did so. It was affecting his putting as well as his full game, and that's why you saw such a dramatic change in just one day.

There are many things that distinguish Jordan Spieth from the rest of the Tour, but clearly one of the most important is his attention to the details of his game -- the fundamentals of his setup in particular. Make sure you check your fundamentals before every round. You may not shoot as low as Jordan, but you'll certainly see more consistency in your game.
