Notebook: Spieth Runs Into Roadblock

Jordan Spieth

AUSTIN, TEXAS | A lost Saturday did not mean an entirely lost week for Jordan Spieth at the WGC-Dell Match Play in his beloved Austin.

After rolling through his three round-robin matches, shooting 10-under par in the process, Spieth was bumped out in the round of 16 by a 4-and-2 loss to Louis Oosthuizen.

During his warm-up session Saturday morning, Spieth said he knew his swing was off. The problem was he couldn’t figure out why he kept hitting shots to the right.

Spieth hit a big Saturday morning slice off the first tee and spent the cool morning chasing a fix he never entirely found.

“I was off from when I hit my first 10 shots on the range,” he said. “The ball was slicing off, which is very odd. I’ve had incredible control of the ball this week and of my wedges. I’m not exactly sure what happened, I still don’t really know.”
