Jordan Spieth on golf, family and inspiration

The best golf players would assemble in Augusta, Georgia, next week, for the Masters Tournament, which is arguably the crown jewel of the four majors of golf.

Among the field, this year, is defending champ Jordan Spieth, who tees off Thursday in Shell Houston open – the final event before golf’s top season gets started.
Spieth lost his No 1 ranking earlier this week, but still expects to keep the most wanted green jacket, said “CBS This Morning” co-host Charlie Rose. Even with his eyes shut, his sweep is spot on. Previous year, just at the age of twenty-one, Spieth became the 2nd youngest man to win Masters, his favorite event in the world.

Spieth told that he came close in his very first attempt in the year 2014. And after that last year, got off to just a great start. They were able to hold it together. It was really incredible. There, you are playing the golf course. And this year’s going to be very tricky as last year, they were 18 under. And the hardest thing to do in repeating — or attempting to repeat — a victory is to not look at the year before and think that this is only going to be like that.

Like his father Shawn, it as hard to believe that he was on his way to play basketball. Spieth told that this is hundred percent the right decision, but one of the toughest things he has had to do was to tell his dad he was going to play golf.
