6. Jordan Spieth
“What’s wrong with Jordan Spieth?” That’s the question that’s been pondered every few months since 2015. The reality of the situation is that there is nothing wrong with the 23-year-old Texan; he simply played one of the best seasons in golf history in 2015 and has set himself up against an impossible standard.
Spieth is coming off of a T2 at Colonial and a T13 at Memorial, and as one of the few players who has seen Erin Hills before this year, he has a level of comfort that few others in the field have.
