For you golf history buffs, how does the threesome of Young Tom Morris, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth sound? Well, if the 24-year old American were to win his second Claret Jug tomorrow he’d join Morris and Woods as the only players in golf history with four majors before the age of 25.

Pretty incredible stuff, considering Spieth hasn’t won a thing since his now iconic victory at Royal Birkdale a year ago.

Mired in the longest slump of his career, Spieth entered Carnoustie without as much as a top-20 finish in nearly four months.

All that could change tomorrow.

With one round of golf at Carnoustie, Spieth could flip what has been a forgetful season into one that would be historic.

“I’ve kind of got a cleared mind. I’ve made a lot of progress over the year that’s been kind of an off year, a building year,” said Spieth.

“And I’ve got an opportunity to make it a very memorable one with a round, but it’s not necessary for me to prove anything for any reason.”
