No extra 'Big Three' buzz for Spieth at Doral

No extra 'Big Three' buzz for Spieth at Doral

Speaking ahead of the WGC-Cadillac Championship, the two-time Masters champion slammed a subtle shot at the golf media for supposedly "twisting" some of his recent comments, no doubt referring to his words at last month's Phoenix Open.

"Los Angeles, that was a bummer", said Spieth, who noted that his swing is sound, but his decision-making was not. "I have played a lot with Jason and a lot with Jordan over the past few years but we haven't really played together in a three-ball". I don't think any of us are buying into any added motivation or excitement because of the pairing. Any course history from longer ago than the last two years doesn't apply, so in my picks this week I'll focus on player's results from the last two years and their current form as we try to find players ready to tame the monster this week.

Spieth's last outing was a rare-for-him missed cut at Riviera.

Spieth and McIlroy each missed the cut in their last outings, at the Northern Trust Open and Honda Classic respectively, but the latter is hopeful a change of putting technique will reap rewards in Florida.

First WGC event of the year, we're entering the near-major stratosphere for the first time in the 2015-2016 season.

Buzz won't be in short supply this week.

Adam Scott: In the bag
Rumford shared with Scott his unique putting grip during the Australian Masters at the end of 2014. Scott summed up his victory succinctly: "I did what I had to". "I felt like I stayed quite calm".


"Obviously, this is a great tournament", Johnson said.

"It's a great event, I think he does a great job here, and I don't really get into politics so", he said. Rose has won at least two events the last two years and he finished sixth at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, so he is on par to have another solid showing this week. It gives me a lot confidence coming into this week.

"It's very good practice for respecting a golf course", said Spieth, who tied for 17th last year and 34th the year before.

Now that he's back playing for a while, Day said his game will take care of itself.

After battling the Bear Trap, the PGA Tour heads to Miami this week for the annual WGC-Cadillac Championship which takes place again this year at the TPC Blue Monster at Trump National Doral. "I know I'm going to pick it up here in a bit and I feel like the work that I'm putting into the game right now, it will pay off".

Koepka made an eight on the par-five 10th during round two, at a time when he was just threatening to get involved in the tournament, and on closer inspection he in fact managed 15 birdies across his four rounds - a remarkable thing when you consider that his final total was +1 and a figure which had him right up towards the top of the par breaker stats for the week.
