‘That’s Jordan’s game to a tee’: Sir Nick Faldo says he fancies Spieth to seal Grand Slam by winning the US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island next weekend
- Jordan Spieth is hoping to claim the US PGA Championship next week
- The 27-year-old Texan’s revival has been one of the stories of the season
- He has a chance to become the sixth man to complete the career Grand Slam
Sir Nick Faldo believes Jordan Spieth must be ‘licking his chops’ at the chance this week to become just the sixth man to complete the career Grand Slam, and the first since Tiger Woods in 2000.
The 27-year-old Texan’s revival has been one of the stories of the season and at Kiawah Island, beginning on Thursday, he will have the opportunity to win the one major missing from his glittering c.v. – the US PGA Championship.
‘It’s a course that gives you a bit of room off the tee but requires great iron play and a magnificent touch around the greens,’ said the six-time major winner on American television. ‘That’s Jordan’s game to a tee.’

Spieth suffered from Covid-19 after his tied-third finish at the Masters last month, but showed he has fully recovered with a strong performance at the Byron Nelson Classic on the PGA Tour.
The finish was delayed by lightning on Sunday night, with Spieth on the 18th hole and in the top 10.
Lee Westwood warmed up for the season’s second major with a 68 and a top-25 finish, while Luke Donald, another former world No 1, put his horrific struggles behind him for a likely top-15 finish.
