As you might have heard, Jordan Spieth won the claret jug at Royal Birkdale with a furious finish. But, while Spieth’s birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie run is the thing of Greek myth, the 23-year-old’s adventures on the 13th hole remain the hot topic by the water cooler.
In case you need a rundown on Spieth’s Southport survey, we recommend clicking here for the extended rundown. Thanks to our friends at the European Tour, we have another piece to the 13th’s puzzle: Michael Greller’s caddie notes.
