PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It’s a short clip in the private from Texas to Georgia, but a long time since Jordan Spieth entered Masters week feeling like, well, Jordan Spieth. Four years without a victory is some blip for a golfer who won three majors by the age of 23. His first came in a record-equalling triumph at the Masters in 2015, the prelude to a year that would see him post a major record of 1, 1, 4, 2.And then, after his victory at the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Lytham, precisely zip, nada, nothing.  i's fantasy football tips newsletter: get aheadEmail address is invalidThank you for subscribing!Sorry, there was a problem with your subscription.Spieth’s fall from the top of the world rankings bottomed out at 92 when he missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in January this year. Read More Bryson DeChambeau: Every surgeon I’ve spoken to says he is taking years off his career, says Butch Harmon There was no sense when he took his leave of Torrey Pines on the California coast that nine weeks hence he would bowl down Magnolia Lane among the favourites to leave the Butler Cabin in a Green Jacket.  The very next week at the Waste Management Open Spieth finished fourth. A week after that he was third at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. There would be another top-five and a top-ten finish and then, drum roll, 1,351 days and 83 starts after Lytham, he crossed the threshold at the Valero Texas Open to claim his 12th PGA Tour title.  A monumental victory is how he described it in an emotional address. “I feel grateful. It’s been a road that had a lot of tough days,” he said, referencing the help he has had along the way, particularly from his wife, Annie. The pair were simply dating the last time he gave a post-win interview.  “It’s been a long road. I never really doubted myself that I’d get back to where I wanted to go but when you lose confidence a lot of times it’s hard to see the positives going forward and I just kept my head down. There moments I look back on where I hit balls till my hands bled and I wasn’t doing the right thing and I just went home thought about it. Lost sleep. This sport can take you in a lot of different directions.

. “I know it’s been a while for you on the PGA Tour, a long road as you called it, but Barbara and I are so proud of you. What a well-played tournament and terrific last round.” Indeed so. A 66 to see off Charley Hoffman and Matt Wallace on championship Sunday for a two-stroke victory demonstrated how significant have been the repairs to the Spieth psyche as well as the technical elements of his game. There are few better breeding grounds for doubt than golf, where standing over a ball with a faltering swing induces cataclysms in the most stout of legs.  Spieth, like the rest of them, will never be happy since the perfection he seeks cannot be achieved. But that won’t stop him trying. “I’ve still got quite a bit to piece together in my game so it is easy for me to put my head down and focus on getting to work this next week,” he said, savouring the expansive range at Augusta National.  “I have some things that regressed in my swing [over the weekend] versus how it felt Thursday, Friday. Until I get to hitting nine of ten shots the way they felt on Friday I’m not done working. The consistency and tightness of the swing still has a way to go. I think it’s just important to embrace when I have moments like this and just really appreciate them, keep the process that I’m doing. Obviously things are starting to work without feeling like I quite have it all, so that’s a really good sign. Take some confidence into next week as well.”     It will doubtless excite the Masters tournament committee, ever alert to the power of a former champion and poster boy returning to something like full strength. Spieth’s redemptive story fits easily into the violin heavy, sugar-coated fantasy that is Masters week. Not that Spieth ever needed to justify his presence at this place. In seven visits he has four top-fives and has never missed the cut.
