Jordan Spieth suspects he could be on the cusp of a banner year. That’s why he’s trying to strike the right balance of fun and focus when he teams up with good friend Ryan Palmer in New Orleans this weekend for the Zurich Classic.
Spieth said he might see some music, considering the city’s renowned Jazz and Heritage Festival also is this weekend. He’s certain he’ll have some memorable meals. He might even take Saints coach Sean Payton up on an invitation to be in New Orleans’ ”war room” during the NFL draft, as he did last year.
”I finally feel like I got the short game back on track in Houston and Augusta. And to hit some of those putts under pressure and see some go in I think will be very beneficial going forward,” Spieth said Wednesday. ”It could very well be a spark for a really solid year. I’m very pleased after the last couple tournaments I played.”
This marks the second year that two-player-teams have competed at the Zurich Classic, held on a par-72, 7,245-yard course carved out of cypress swamps to the southwest of New Orleans. This year’s tournament, which begins Thursday, has a $7.2 million purse – $1.04 million and 400 FedExCup points each for the winners.
Patrick Reed expects a sizeable, boisterous gallery, and not just because he’s fresh off of being fitted for his first green jacket as Masters champion. He went to high school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where his wife attended college at LSU. So he’d be a fan favorite anyway.
