Spieth ready for Hawaii test
Jordan Spieth is keeping his expectations low heading into the Sony Open in Hawaii but admits the course suits his game.
The former world number one has slipped to 17th in the rankings following a disappointing 2018, but is looking for a positive start to the new year in Hawaii.
The American is refusing to set a target heading into the tournament but says he will enjoy playing the Waialae Country Club.
“I like this golf course, you can kind of think your way around and as far as attitude goes just keep it light, recognise that it’s the first tournament of the year,” Spieth said.
“I’m trying to get a feel for tournament golf. I haven’t played a lot of rounds over the last couple of months. I’m working on some things, it’s progressing, and just got to come out with a lot of trust here but most importantly keep the light mood, keep the expectations lower to start.
“It’s a course where I’ve had some success before so even without my best stuff I feel I can contend, but I like where my game is at right now and I like this course for what I’m working on."
