After two rounds of play at Pebble Beach, Jordan Spieth was in contention for his first win in over a year, but it all ended on the back nine during round three, which included two double bogeys (Nos. 13 and 18) over his final six holes.

Spieth signed for a “frustrating” 74 on Saturday to drop from T1 to T18, and on Sunday it was even worse, as the one-time “Golden Child” produced a uninspiring 75 to finish T45.

On the season, Spieth owns a best finish of T35 (Farmers), alongside a T45 (Pebble), T55 (Shriners), and a pair of missed-cuts (Mayakoba and Sony).

Currently ranked No. 21 in the world – his worst since becoming a full-time PGA Tour pro (going back to his teenage days in 2013), Spieth will fall to No. 23 in the rankings when play finishes up on Monday.
