Jordan Spieth reveals what he’d give to complete career grand slam

Jordan Spieth Pga

At the Masters, it was whether Rory McIlroy could do it; but now, attention has turned to Jordan Spieth.

The 28-year-old has another chance to complete the career grand slam at this week’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills, with the Wanamaker Trophy the one glaring omission from his glittering collection.

Spieth came closest to completing the slam in 2019 when he challenged Brooks Koepka – but feels as though he has an even better chance to finish the set this week.

And ahead of the tournament, the 28-year-old revealed he would happily exchange all possible future wins to make sure he joins the elite club to have won all four majors.

“I don’t think I talk about it much with other people but at this point, having won the other three, it’s an elephant in the room for me. It’s a gold mine,” Spieth said.

“If you told me I was going to win one tournament for the rest of my life, I’d say I want to win this one given where things are at.

“It would be really cool to say you’ve captured the four biggest golf tournaments in the world. You feel like you’ve accomplished golf when you complete a career grand slam.

“I’ve come close a couple of times. It hasn’t necessarily been my most successful major but I feel good going into this week.

“The only real chance I had was Bethpage but I remember that Saturday and Sunday, and I don’t remember it feeling any different to other majors I’ve contended in.

“It would be pretty cool, wouldn’t it?”
