Spieth Touts 'Tremendous Progress' With Putter

Jordan Spieth left the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Sunday feeling a lot better about his putting than he did leaving a missed cut in Phoenix last week.

“It’s all positives the last couple days,” Spieth said.

With a 1-under-par 71 in the final round, Spieth left scoring tied for 20th. He holed a monster 54-foot putt on the fifth hole and needed just 25 putts on the round, his best day with the flat stick this week.

“My putter made tremendous progress this week,” Spieth said. “I feel great about it going forward. I just need to tighten up the swing a little bit, just wedge play, really.”

Spieth, one of the best putters on Tour, came into the week ranked 195th in strokes gained putting. He acknowledged being in a “minor slump,” with his focus on improving technique, so he can get back to just letting the putter go.

“The putts I missed today were the ones I misread,” Spieth said. “I don’t think I put one bad stroke on it, which is the first time I can say that in a long time.”
