Texan Jordan Spieth is tied for 8th place at the Open Championship (The British Open) with a combined two rounds of -5. J.B. Holms and Shane Lowry sit on top at -8.

Spieth hasn’t won a tournament in two years, his last win; the 2017 British Open. Could the Dallas Native hoist the Claret Jug again this year? It’s not a fantastic start, but it’s solid enough for a major. At 25 it’s hard to say he’s washed up, but he is nowhere near what he was just a few years ago. It would be great for the sport and Texas to see him back to his old form.

The win two years ago was a wild one, to say the least, with ups and downs, even a shot from the practice range that saved the round. Then the beautiful 50-foot eagle putt.

There’s a lot of talent ahead of the former number one, including three British natives, but no one more daunting than current number one Brooks Koepka who is currently tied with him. It’s an uphill climb but would make for a heck of a story, hopefully, I’ll get to write it Sunday evening.
