‘That’s Jordan’s game to a tee’: Sir Nick Faldo says he likes Spieth sealing Grand Slam by winning the US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island next weekend

  • Jordan Spieth hopes to claim the US PGA Championship next week
  • The 27-year-old Texan’s revival was one of the stories of the season
  • He has a chance to become the sixth man to complete the Grand Slam career

Sir Nick Faldo believes Jordan Spieth should ‘lick’ the chance this week to become the sixth man to complete the Grand Slam career, and the first since Tiger Woods in 2000.

The revival of the 27-year-old Texan has been one of the stories of the season and on Kiawah Island, starting Thursday, he will have the chance to win the one big missing from his glittering resume: the US PGA Championship.

“It’s a course that gives you a little space off the tee, but requires a great iron play and a great touch around the greens,” said the six-time winner on American television. “That’s Jordan’s game on the tee.”

Spieth suffered from Covid-19 after his tie for third at the Masters last month, but showed he has made a full recovery with a strong performance at the Byron Nelson Classic on the PGA Tour.

The finish was delayed by lightning on Sunday evening, with Spieth on the 18th hole and in the top 10.

Lee Westwood warmed up for the second major of the season with a 68 and a top 25 finish, while Luke Donald, also a former World No. 1 champion, left his gruesome battle behind for a likely top 15 finish.
