If it weren’t so wildly entertaining, it would almost be boring these days. But, of course, when you’re talking about arguably the biggest star in golf over the last five years, it’s impossible to deny.
What Spieth brings to the table is a level of consistency that basically every other golfer on the planet would kill for. Out of 18 stroke play events this season, Spieth made the cut in 15, and finished in the top-25 in 12 of them. When you hear him and Michael Greller talk about their plans for a tournament, it’s always the same – they play to win. And more often than not, they’re in the mix.
Spieth heads into the FedEx Cup Playoffs in fine form, and he truly shines on this high-pressure stage. In his four FedEx Cup eligible seasons, Spieth has finished outside the top-25 just four times. He missed the cut at both the Barclays and the Deutsche Bank in 2015, but backed it up by winning the Tour Championship and his first FedEx Cup.
Just about every time we think we’ve seen Spieth with his back up against the wall, he finds some way to make it work. He’s been on top of the Playoff stage before, and there’s no reason to think he can’t do it again.
