More proof that Jordan Spieth can't do much wrong, charges out for opening 67

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- If you're into symbolism, the defining moment of Jordan Spieth's opening day at St. Andrews came in his post-match press conference, about halfway through. The R&A divides the flash area into two stages -- it makes it easier to hold two important press conferences simultaneously, while a third is happening in the interview room five minutes away -- and Spieth was holding down the right side of the tent when Tiger Woods walked in. The 14-time major winner had a pained, weary expression on his face when he saw Spieth, but I find myself doubting that Spieth himself was the inspiration, since the look persisted through the entire press conference and, I have to assume, preceded it by about five hours.
