Jordan Spieth’s performance this weekend has struck everyone with awe. Although, there are many saying he’s making it a boring show by coming out so far ahead in the early rounds. But, why do all those people care whether it’s boring or a close-one? 

Sure, maybe you won’t be able to bite your nails as it comes down to the last few holes on Sunday. Maybe you won’t be see your favorites, like Rory McIlroy or Rickie Fowler, come out on top. Maybe you won’t even care to watch come Sunday. 

Now, let’s talk about why this isn’t boring and why maybe having less of a chip on your shoulder will allow you take in a great moment in PGA history. 

Jordan Spieth is 21-years-old. He’s made 2014 and 2015 interesting to watch and he’s certainly made young guns out there excited to play the game.  These are a few highlights you should be excited about as he goes into his third round today: 

  • Last year he tied for second. 
  • This year, he’s made history by breaking the 36-hole record. 
  • He was also the youngest to lead after 18 holes. 
  • At this pace, he is on track to beat the record for birdies in one Masters. 
  • If he wins this year, he’ll be the second youngest (youngest being Tiger Woods) to win the Masters. 

Should we be complaining that Spieth is making the weekend boring? Or, should be prepping to watch an incredible young golfer, go out and win the Master’s in only his second attempt? 

Spieth tees off at 2:55pm EST today.
