When you think back to the rapid rise of Jordan Spieth, it's hard to imagine where he is now. What happened and how can you learn from it?
Jordan Spieth made his first start of the year at the Farmers Insurance Open and it was a case of same-old 2019 Spieth for the three-time major winner. After a promising opening two rounds, a disappointing weekend left him in a tie for 55th place, a distant 14 shots behind eventual winner Marc Leishman.

Jordan Speith's scoring splits by round last season were crazy.

This trend was a feature of 2019 and the 26-year-old now finds himself outside the world’s top 50 for the first time in almost six and a half years.
But despite his loss of form, Spieth was optimistic when questioned by the media.
“I’m ready to bounce back to where I’ve been in the past,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen right away. Big picture I have a really good frame of mind which should allow me to build some patience into getting my game where I want it to be.”
