Spieth Trying to Look at British Open as Another Event
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — With a chance to match history at the home of golf, Jordan Spieth is trying to make the British Open feel like just another event.
That might be his toughest test at St. Andrews.
The Masters and U.S. Open champion set out on his final day of practice Wednesday. His news conference filled the room, which typically only happens for Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy.
Spieth says he has vivid memories of his practice round on the Old Course when he was a freshman at Texas on his way to the Walker Cup, and conceded that one can't play enough rounds on a course that has been around as long as golf.
He says his victory at the John Deere Classic last week also helps.
