“I really feel like I could have had three or four wins this season,” the 28-year-old added. However, Spieth does remain “very, very pleased”. “But the part of me that’s the perfectionist is wanting more and more. And I think that’s great. I think that that’s going to push me to continue to try and improve, which I certainly have plenty of room to still do”.

He even complimented TPC Southwind, calling it a really good course. “I probably would have played here every year, you know, had it not been where it was in the schedule”. The 28-year-old added that he does like the greens, and mentioned that “it’s just overall a really nice test where at par-70 you don’t necessarily see scores go extremely low “.
