Is Jordan Spieth Smiling Through the Pain? Woeful Struggles Get Exposed as Harsh Reality Comes to Light Through a Disappointing Stat

The golf world has been going through a bumpy ride ever since LIV Golf came into existence. However, it worked as a charm for PGA Tour players in terms of OWGR points since the Saudi players have little to no access to them. But there are some who, despite being extremely loyal to the PGA Tour, have been suffering a major setback on the leaderboard. And a prominent name on this list has been former World No. 1 Jordan Spieth, who recently made it back to his long-lost pedestal.

Jordan Spieth is back among the top 10 on the OWGR leaderboard
Spieth, 29, is counted among some of the best players on the PGA Tour for his unbeatable records. The former World No. 1 held the top spot on the OWGR leaderboard for 25 weeks in his career. But his recent performances haven’t been as impressive as they used to be. And that led the golfer to reach as low as reaching the 92nd rank after his disappointing finish at the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open.

After his win at the 2017 Open Championship, the golf star tasted success after a really long break by making consistent top-five finishes in three tournaments in 2021. His career victories also include three major wins comprising the Masters and the US Open in 2015, followed by the 2017 British Open. But his tournament finishes since 2021 were not as great as he expected them to be.

Spieth had a pretty rough time in the last three years, trying to make it to the top again. The golfer has been away from the headlines too and has been quietly working on his skills. However, his second-place finish at the RBC Heritage tournament has proved to do the job for him. And after spending at least a couple of years of slow lurking toward the top, Spieth has finally made it among the top 10! Currently, at the 10th place on the OWGR leaderboard, Spieth can finally take a sigh of relief now.

How did Spieth perform at the RBC Heritage?
The 2023 RBC Heritage was the perfect opportunity for Spieth to make his long-awaited comeback on the course. However, despite his amazing performance, the golfer had to settle for a second-place finish after a spectacular play-off against Matt Fitzpatrick, who ended up defeating the American pro.
