Who Will Get The Career Grand Slam First?
Speith or McIlroy?
However, Rory McIlroy is also only one away, so this sparks a new debate…
Who will get it first? Well, here is my take.
When you look at their last legs of the grand slam, Spieth needs the PGA Championship and Rory needs the Masters.
Let’s look at Rory’s odds.
He doesn’t play terrible at Augusta, but he seems to never be able to get over the hump.
A T7 finish last season and a few more top 10 finishes make one think that he could string a few rounds together in April and finally get a green jacket.
Rory has said publicly that he would not feel complete without a green jacket.
But I think the door is going to shut, just about when it’s open enough to walk through.
This years PGA Championship is at Quail Hollow. Quail Hollow is the usual stop for the Wells Fargo, but it got changed.
Spieth’s lone performance on this course finished T32.
Experts say they have made so many changes and renovations into this course that it’s virtually a new course.
Why am I picking Spieth to not only get the grand slam first, but to do it this year?
Well, he is the hottest golfer on tour right now.
He walked into TPC River Highlands never played that course before and won the whole thing.
Took some time off and people didn’t think Royal Birkdale fit his style.
He went from Sunday meltdown to Sunday heroics and won the whole thing. I see that coming again.
He is top notch on the greens and if he can hit his driver mediocre, he will win the PGA Championship, set himself up perfectly to win the FedEX Cup and earn the career grand slam.
