What a finish at the Masters. In your opinion what do you think happened to Jordan Spieth?
— Carl, Chicago
You are right it was an extraordinary finish. First let us not forget how well Danny Willett played and he deserves to be congratulated for a great win.
As far as Jordan’s collapse (crash) is concerned, it was agonizing to watch.
If we asked him to go out today and repeat the second shot on the 12th hole, I don’t think he would be able to replicate it without trying a dozen times or more. It is just not a shot easily found in his bag.
The mind is a powerful thing and it must have started to needle him after the two previous bogeys. The most amazing thing is that after this crash he got up, brushed himself off and didn’t give up. This is the sign of a champion and he has many more wins in his bag. Jordan is a superstar, as is Danny and they will be in a tight race next year.
It’s important to never give up and continue to follow your dreams. This is a theme that runs throughout my new book “Banshee” a true story about my sailing adventure with a friend in our 25-foot sailboat with the intent of circumnavigating the globe in 1963 without the benefits of modern technology. I wrote the book and shared the story to inspire others. Click here to learn more.
