According to Golf Digest’s Dave Shedloski, Jordan Spieth is now working with Tiger Woods’ former coach Butch Harmon. The plan is for Harmon to return the former No. 1 player to form.
Will it work? At the very least, Spieth has the skills to make it happen.

Spieth is now 27-years-old and currently sits at No. 84 in the world. So things can’t get much worse for him. He’s still working with long-time coach Cameron McCormick to “make sure he’s on the right path,” according to McCormick.
However, Jordan Spieth hasn’t won a tournament since 2017 at The Open Championship. A player with this type of talent to fail for three years running? It’s a waste.
The former Texas Longhorn has all the tools he needs to make a comeback, and admitting he needs help is a solid first step in the right direction. We’re not saying he’s Tiger Woods (because he’s literally not), but Woods revamped his swing from scratch after major back surgery. Spieth may be able to do the same and rely on his talent to shine through when he plays again at the Farmer’s Open in two weeks. Only time will tell.

He needs to do something, glad he is with Butch. He still needs to get rid of McCormack; he hasn’t helped him at all during this slump.
Agree wholeheartedly. Thanks for reading.
It would be great for golf if Spieth gets back to form with all the other talent in the game. He’s a genuine guy, faults and all. I’ll always pull for him to get it back and compete for trophies and Ryder cups
