Jordan Spieth halfway to major Grand Slam with US Open triumph


Is there any stopping the Texan freight train that is Jordan Spieth? The 21-year-old marched to a resounding victory at the US Open to secure his second major title of the season – and climb to the halfway mark of a career Grand Slam.

After putting paid to the smooth carpet-esque greens of Augusta, where many predicted he would be washed away in the tide of talent who’d already proven their worth on the iconic course, Spieth again wowed, albeit on polar opposite conditions at Chambers Bay.

The course drew the ire of almost every top-tier golfer who graced its brown, shoddy surface – and yet for Spieth it was business as usual – despite a few inevitable stumbles.

We could wax lyrical about the poor course condition until the next major arrives, but this should be a day for Spieth to be congratulated, not an argument of whether choosing the Washington course was a good idea by USGA officials.

And the fact is, Spieth has now become the youngest player since Tiger Woods to win back-to-back majors this early in the season.

He also earned a good few more records, too, including becoming the youngest winner of the US Open since Bobby Jones in 1923 and the second player to win four times before the age of 22. He’s also the 16th player to win the Masters and US Open in their career, and fifth player to capture both Masters and US Open silverware in the same season. But perhaps most impressive is the fact Spieth is now also the youngest golfer to win two career Majors since Gene Sarazen in 1922 – a truly spectacular feat.

"Yeah, I mean, every single thing that I'm able to do, somebody seems to find a history lesson on why I was the youngest to do something or as young as somebody way back when," Spieth said.

"For me, this is my life. I've now been doing it for a while. I don't really think of my age. I just think of us all as peers.

"It's cool to be able to have two legs of the Grand Slam now, and to conquer golf's hardest test.

"The U.S. Open is conquering the hardest layout in all of golf. That's the way every year. The fact that we did it is amazing. We really grinded this week.”
