Final Round Interview with Jordan Spieth
Q. (No microphone.)
JORDAN SPIETH: Pretty similar. Yeah, it was disguised on scoring this week. I actually hit the ball better on the weekend than I did the first two rounds and I feel like I putted better, I just for some reason scored way worse, kind of a weird one. Progress for the week. Kind of an average week, but progress nonetheless.
Q. We know where you're going next, so how to put that mindset into action this coming week?
JORDAN SPIETH: Yeah, I know what I need to work on. Match play can be kind of tough because you're not exactly sure how well you're playing. You're attacking some, you're playing super safe on others, so at least this week I was able to -- have to hit more shots, 72 holes' worth, and on a pretty difficult driving golf course, so I could see kind of where my weaknesses are, what I need to work on. I'll go in and just try and get the right amount of rest with the right amount of practice in to be ready to go on Thursday.
Q. You've played a lot of majors. How is your confidence level now going into this one?
JORDAN SPIETH: I guess average. I mean, pretty average. I wouldn't say down or up, I would say I feel good about my chances just like I do anytime going into a major championship, especially the Masters. I've had a lot of success there no matter what my form's been coming into it. I feel like I'm playing better than my results are showing and that starts to kind of turn around over time as long as I'm patient with it.
Q. Were you surprised to be hit into on 17?
JORDAN SPIETH: Yeah, they know they can get there, so that was a bit surprising.
Q. The way things have gone this season, what places do you find a lot of confidence? Is it simply putting or --
JORDAN SPIETH: My short game, my wedge play was phenomenal. And then on the full swing, I'm just working out of the same stuff I've been trying to work out of. I was just really dug deep into a hole. I'm trying to climb out of it. It's getting better I feel like with each rep now. Trusting it on a golf course is a little different from the range and next week it requires me to hit a lot of ball flights and that certainly could speed up the process, that kind of feel aspect of it.
