“I guess I got back into tournament golf. Played well, hit a lot of good shots. You know, rusty mistakes here and there, and then I just didn’t putt as well as I would like to. So stroke was a little off to start, and I’ll work on that for next week for sure,” Spieth said when asked about the PGA Championship. 

Spieth achieved a career-best second-place finish at the 2015 PGA Championship. He finished T71 last year, and T3 the year before. Where do you think Jordan Spieth will finish at this year’s PGA Championship at the Ocean Course?
