    All good things for spieth on his comeback. Spieths ability to win is not in question; it’s only his form that’s still a bit of a concern, but it’s improving.

        If you remember I predicted it would help; specifically the part about a bigger turn. And it has.

        Now Berger won working with Cam. And Cam has had the most to do with bringing Jordan. Both these guys are in good hands.
