IRVING Jordan Spieth and his caddie, , compete in tandem during golf tournaments. Much of their other time together is spent jousting one another.
They compete at table tennis. Cards. Pool. Fishing. They have impromptu putting and chipping contests. They argue wholesale jerseys from china the merits of colleges: Spieth’s beloved Texas vs. Greller’s cherished Michigan.
In most other respects 21 year old Dallas native Spieth and 37 year old Pacific Northwest resident Greller are pro golf’s odd couple, but they’ve channeled their competitive natures into Spieth becoming the world’s No. 2 ranked golfer.
“I think one reason we cheap jerseys china hit it off so well is I don’t back down from him at all,” Greller said. “I don’t care that he’s Jordan Spieth. To me he’s the same guy I met four years ago. I want to stick it to him so he doesn’t stick it to me.”
In December 2012, when Spieth decided to turn pro midway through his sophomore year at Texas, he gambled by asking little known, relatively inexperienced Greller to be his caddie.
Greller’s decision to accept, though, might have been the bigger personal risk. Caddying was a hobby to him, something he did during summers between teaching sixth grade math and science at Narrows View Intermediate School in University Place, Wash., near Tacoma. Junior Amateur at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash., with Spieth winning the event for the second time in three years.
When Spieth’s father, Shawn, called with the caddie job offer, Greller was nearing holiday break, 10 years into his teaching career.
Spieth needed to make at least $101,295 in those seven tournaments to earn unlimited exemptions; otherwise he and Greller would spend the rest of the year toiling on far less lucrative mini tours.
Cha ching. Spieth made $521,893 in his first four events. Soon after, Greller phoned Narrowsview Intermediate School and made his leave of absence permanent.
“The caddie thing was kind of just a fun thing to do in the cheap wholesale jerseys summertime, and it kept getting more fun,” Greller said. “I haven’t stopped having fun.”
Barely two years after their momentous start together, Spieth is coming off a second place tie at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and has $13,881,721 in career earnings entering this week’s AT Byron Nelson at the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas.
“Mike’s my right hand man,” Spieth said. “He’s the only other guy on course who can help influence what happens.
“He’s doing a great job for me. And each week we’re cheap jerseys learning a little bit more. Still are.”
No letting upIn other words, Spieth sees room for improvement in his play and in the player caddie relationship.
Greller said Spieth is never satisfied and always looking forward, adding that since his rookie season Spieth has become far less likely to dwell on poor shots and rounds.
How, exactly, does Spieth plan to improve upon a career arc that has seen him win the Masters in his second attempt and in 72 PGA Tour starts finish first or second 11 times (15.2 percent)?
One of the more remarkable aspects of Spieth’s success is how consistently he finishes among the top 10 25 times in his career (34.7 percent of his starts) and nine of his 23 starts (39 percent) this season, but Spieth regards some of those as lost opportunities for victories.
In his first six starts this season, Spieth posted two seventh place ties and a fourth place tie, but slipped to a disappointing for him 17th place tie on March 8 in the World Golf Championship’s Cadillac Championship at Doral.
The following day, Spieth and Greller met for more than an hour. Greller said Spieth gave him about four “fine tuning” points he wanted him to work on. Spieth said one of his requests was for Greller to be more assertive in areas such as club selection and stepping in to stop Spieth when he feels a gust of wind.
Six days later, Spieth won the Valspar Championship in a playoff. “It was neat that very week to have the opportunity to put those things into action,” Greller said.
In eight starts since the pivotal meeting, Spieth has two victories, including the Masters, and three second place finishes.
Spieth said coming back to North Texas to play Colonial and the Nelson is a welcome change because he knows the courses well, which allows Greller to “focus more on the mental side of it.”Articles Connexes：
