Nerve Knee, Jordan Spit is in his happy place – leading in Texas

SAN ANTONIO – Most Piga tourists walk the golf course with carelessness and confidence when they feel comfortable.

When Jordan Spit is in his happy place, there is constant conversation, nervous fan interaction, eye rolling and trembling.

The former Texas University star has been spotted at his favorite venue – all of which is enough to be seen in the third round of the Valero Texas Open – to lead a golf tournament in his home country.

Spice dug himself out of some difficult situation, moved on to TPC in the San Antonio Oaks Course, from 9 to 31, and advanced to the under-12 lead with Matt Wallace.

Perhaps the most spectacular escape was when he followed the 334-yard drive to No. 17, opening his face with a saw and hitting a full float about 30 inches. Spieth hit a short bird and rolled his head to admit that he had dragged Hudini.

“So I guess the ball went into the cart and ran to the end. If you want it all day long and it stays above the pin and goes down to that pin very easily and down, you may miss that tea shot. So I was in a strong position, ”he said of the spade in the second-to-last hole. I found a drop from the cart and came across something solid. I wanted to lie to the left and then I went to the green and saw that it was as hard as going to the well, so I thought he could go to the well when I fired.

“I think I told Wally that he was like one in 10, but maybe one in five. It’s like a half-length pool shot. I was really lucky to go the right distance, but I was trying to make four and I got a bonus from him.

For the first time ever – in the midst of a seemingly endless decline and epidemic – the masses of the day followed the Spirit with Greg Norman’s design screaming every bullet.

After a warm welcome to WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin last week, Spit is feeling the love of not only home fans but also fans who have not seen him win the 2017 Open Championship. And while winning a second green jacket is the final prize, Spit insists he will only look for the next 24 hours.

“Winning here… I mean, winning the PGA Tour competition is very, very difficult and I have definitely been humiliated in this process over the last few years. First, I focus on this week, I have always been. I never thought of it before, ”said Spit. I thought the best preparation for next week was to engage yourself in an argument and see how all aspects of the game are under pressure. I got that little to try today and I hope to make some improvements tomorrow.

He faces a tough match on Saturday, with the Wallabies tied for 67 and the Wallabies under 12 and the 65 behind and two behind the leaders.

But in any case, he is just as happy as any other player, just as easily as he can be.

“Believe me, even if they don’t play well, I feel nervous because sometimes they get more anxious because they don’t know where the cursed ball is going,” said Spit. It’s good when I’m comfortable under pressure, I think that’s the most important thing. You start to do it more often and you feel more comfortable under pressure and that’s why we play the game at this stage, that’s what we enjoy.
