Not trying to jinx him- but he in Pres Cup already next month!

 

Tiger Woods knew he was ready to turn pro when he shot a 66 at age 20 in the second round of the 1996 British Open at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He closed with a pair of 70s and tied for 22nd, his best finish as an amateur in 14 professional events. His father referred to it as his "coming out party."

 

Woods won the U.S. Amateur for the third straight time a month later, turned pro and was on his way.

 

For Jordan Spieth, his moment of realization came at the U.S. Open when he was 18.

Watching the tour this year Im convinced he will be at the top. He has the talent, PLUS the mental steel to take his chances. If the rest of his life stays in balance he could grab a major next season

Yep, if he can keep his head in the game and not turn into a party animal like Anthony Kim, he could be anything.  To be so calm and composed on the world stage at only 20 years of age is quite amazing.

I reckon the way he closed out the season after getting that victory goes to show that he has a good head on his shoulders....

I would be prepared to say that Matsuyama will win a major before Spieth.

I agree Bruce. It would be an interesting contest if they get to play each other in the President's Cup singles matches.

Well Ignoramus - Spieth is a hell of a player but when you consider that on debut at the Masters two years ago Matsuyama made the cut and led the amateurs, then finished 10th on debut at the US Open at Merion earlier this year then finished 6th at the Open with a one shot penalty in July, his record at the elite level is amazing - not to mention what he has done in Japan this year.

I asked somebody today who has played with both Spieth and Matsuyama who he considered the better of the two, and he agrees with you. He commented that Spieth has modified his swing to a more conventional position through the ball, where before he was extended up on his toes through impact.

If Jordan Speith is the next big thing he should make sure he stays away from Anthony Kim and Camillo Villegas.  Both of those were 'next big things' and he doesn't want to catch whatever it was that caused their careers to go south.

I watched The PGA special on the 62 US Open yesterday, and there are some similarities between Speith and Jack Nicholas, both being exceptional Amatuers. I hope he can go on with it, would be great to see another natural, take the worlds best on.

I think Spieth is overrated, he has only won once since he was a teenager.
