It would mean a career grand slam for Spieth

This week, Jordan Spieth has the chance to win a so-called career grand slam, which means a player wins all four major tournaments in his career.
Spieth, 28, won the Masters and the US Open in 2015. Two years later he won the Open.
Now he’s up at the Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the PGA Championship, the major he misses in the prize cabinet. He was second in 2015 and third in 2019, so there are plenty of places
Only five players have managed to win all four major competitions: Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen and Tiger Woods.
– Considering I won the other three, that’s definitely an elephant in the room for me. It’s a goal for me. If someone said I would only win one more competition in my life, I would say I wanted to win this one, Spieth said at a press conference this week.

After winning the 2017 Brith Open, this is Spieth’s sixth career Grand Slam attempt.
It may also be his best chance so far.
After a slump where he fell to 92nd place in the world rankings, Spieth is now up to eighth place in the rankings and he too enters the competition with another victory in the bag. In April, he won RBC Heritage, his 13th PGA Tour victory.
– It would be really cool to be able to say that you have won the four biggest golf competitions in the world which are played in different places in the world and also under different conditions. But I’m not trying to emphasize anything this week. If you look at it long term, if I’m allowed to be healthy, then I should have about twenty chances of making it. One in twenty, I usually have a better chance than that, says Jordan Spieth.

Asked what it would mean to achieve a career Grand Slam, Jordan Spieth replied:
– Yes, what do you think that would mean. That would be really cool, no. I think that would be pretty cool, writes Golfweek.
On Thursday and Friday, Jordan Spieth will play alongside Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
