Hometown hero Jordan Spieth had a busy day yesterday while battling a nasty cold/allergy.

After meeting with the media, he hosted his annual Junior Golf clinic, including a nifty golf trick with a marshmallow.

There’s far more pressure on his performance beginning on Thursday.

“I’m telling you, if we won this event, that would be a very special moment I would cherish forever.”

“I feel great about the way I’m hitting the ball right now. I didn’t have my (putting stroke) last week, and I did some good work with Cameron the last two days and I seem to have gotten it back.

“I knew it was something simple, and it was. So if we can just continue to do that and roll those putts in, we’ll be in business.”

And, his thoughts on the widening gap between him and #1 Jason Day.

“There’s some motivation there. He’s playing his game. He believes his game is better than anybody else’s, and he’s on his game and so it is better than everybody else’s. What he’s doing right now, I think I can win the next two events and I’m still not going to surpass him in the world rankings. He’s separated himself, and that bothers me and it motivates me.”

It’s hard to believe Spieth’s highest finish at the Nelson is the stupendous T16 when he was a mere 16-years-old. Since then his finishes are 32nd, 68th, 37th and 30th   He’ll tee off Thursday with Jason Dufner and Jimmy Walker at 12:50.
