The Jordan Spieth Slam-o-Meter: Monday at the Open Championship
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Throughout this week, we'll update the status of Jordan Spieth becoming the first golfer to ever complete the calendar Grand Slam. Here's the vibe surrounding this young star from the Old Course on Monday:*
The Good: Spieth is coming off a win at the John Deere Classic after basically spotting the rest of the field a round. After opening with a one-over-par 71 -- which at TPC Deere Run is probably the equivalent of a 75 at an average PGA Tour course -- Spieth shot 64-61-68 and beat Tom Gillis in a playoff. That gives Spieth two straight victories and four wins overall this season. This guy pretty much never has a bad week.
