JORDAN SPIETH | DAVIS LOVE III | RYDER CUP

Jordan Spieth will ‘never get over’ his Masters collapse, according to US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III.


The 22-year-old blew a five-shot lead as he saw back-to-back titles at Augusta slip through his fingers, with Love revealing that going off his experiences, Spieth will never forget what happened on the back nine on Sunday.

“I think back to the ’95 US Open,” said Love ahead of the RBC Heritage. “I had a putt to win, a putt to get in a play-off, and then I made a putt not to be in a play-off. So I’ll never forget it. I bogeyed the last two holes and could’ve won the US Open.

“At 22, you’re probably going to have a lot more chances. But it doesn’t matter if he wins five Masters and five of every other major and breaks Jack’s record, he’s still going to look back and go, I could’ve won that one. He’ll never get over it.”

Love also spoke about his preparations for the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine in just over five months’ time, explaining what he learned from what happened on the final day at Medinah in 2012.

“We were really cocky going in, but we weren’t thinking we’d have a four-point lead on Saturday night,” he said. “We’ll be a little bit more prepared on what to say and we’ll know our players a little better, to know that if they get off to a rough or hot start on Sunday, we know what we need to say to them, how to handle them and who is going to talk to who.”
