Jordan Spieth


JORDAN SPIETH: It was a wonderful first Open experience to play a golf course like Muirfield that's just raved about. In the conditions that we had, it was phenomenal. I enjoyed it. I played well for a little while. And I learned a lot out of this week. This is just different golf that I am not used to. And from there I can learn quite a bit.

Q. As the week wore on did fatigue come into play at all?
JORDAN SPIETH: I don't think so. I was off late yesterday and today. I mean, I was able to sleep in a little bit. Honestly, it's just been a lot of golf swings. It's been 293 golf swings in the last month in a tournament, and then you at least double that for practice rounds. And a lot of players do that, but that's kind of abnormal for me to be in contention the last three weeks and then come here. Yeah, maybe just a little bit worn out. But I gave it all I had today. And time to rest now.

Q. Your birthday next Sunday, what will you do?
JORDAN SPIETH: I'll be at home. Probably just -- just with friends and family hanging out. I'll be in Dallas at home.

Q. How many weeks off before you get back on Tour?
JORDAN SPIETH: I'm not sure yet. At least one, probably a couple of weeks and then the PGA Championship.

Q. The FedExCup right after?
JORDAN SPIETH: Yes, the FedExCup right after. I know there's quite a few candidates; Russell has won this year and has played phenomenally. You never know. That would be great role to have for the end of the year.

Q. If there's one thing about this that you've learned, what is it?
JORDAN SPIETH: Patience. That's what I said yesterday.

Q. (Inaudible.)
JORDAN SPIETH: A little easier conditions. The wind picked up the last two days. Today I was pretty smart all the way around. I just had some bad swings. A couple double bogeys were just really bad swings. It wasn't bad decisions on my part. I'm happy with my first Open experience. Looking back, obviously, I didn't expect to be here. So it's pretty awesome. This four-week stretch has been incredible, and did a lot for me going forward. I'm just happy to get home to my own bed.

Q. Were you short on clothes?
JORDAN SPIETH: Yeah, I packed for one week, but Under Armour got it brought over here and it wasn't a problem from there on in.

Q. The birdie on 7 --
JORDAN SPIETH: Yeah, 7 was actually a pretty easy hole today. The leaders are about to go to it. You'll see, I think, a lot of birdies. It's a 7-iron to carry 180 and bounces back there. I made a good putt. And I left about 70 percent of the putts I hit this week short. So today my goal was to go ahead and just start ripping it. Once I left my first couple short on the first couple of holes. I just said if I have four or five feet coming back, even if I miss a couple of those, at least I was being aggressive and giving it a chance. The hole before I hit a good putt, made a good one on 5.

Q. 11?
JORDAN SPIETH: 11? Yeah, 11, hit a great 3-wood down the fairway and was left with 113 yards, and into the wind tried to punch a pitching wedge. Got it on the right ledge and was able to be aggressive and it kind of hammered into the hole.

Q. How far was that?
JORDAN SPIETH: The putt? Probably a 20-footer.

Q. (Inaudible.)
JORDAN SPIETH: I knew I was going to be in John Deere. I was going to do Congressional, have a week off, John Deere, have a week off here. So, yeah, I thought I was going to play two out of the four, and I ended up playing four in a row here. I packed for the Washington, D.C. heat, and ended up in Scotland.
