The Jordan Spieth Slam-o-Meter: Wednesday 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. On Wednesday, he had his pre-tournament press conference and he said all the right things -- or did he?

The Good: Man, is this guy polished. And confident. But not cocky. And not afraid of a little bad weather that is in the forecast.

"I think it's fun. We don't come over here to get -- if we wanted to get good weather we'd go play in California. We come over here because we want to embrace the opportunity of handling these conditions."

But what about handling pressure?

"I just wasn't sure how I'd be able to handle the Masters this year leading all four rounds and being able to close it out. You don't sleep well on the lead in a major, and so to do it for a few days and still continue to play the best golf I've ever played and putt the best I've ever putted, that gave me a lot of confidence, and really that tournament right there established, hey, we can do this going forward in each one if we get the chance. We've done it before, why can't we do it again?"

Good point.
