Spieth reveals plan to get back to best
Jordan Spieth knows he needs to work on most areas of his game in a bid to improve this year after a disappointing 2018.
The American is preparing for his first competitive outing since the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November when he features in the Sony Open in Hawaii from Friday.
The former world No.1 slipped to 17th in the rankings after a tough season when he failed to pick up a title and missed out on the season-ending Tour Championship.
Spieth knows he has plenty to work on but is confident he can rediscover his best form, like when he won the Masters and US Open in 2015 and The Open in 2017.
He told NBC Golf: "I'm trying to take what I did last year statistically and find the weak points. A lot of work on the putter and try to get back to the putting I expect from myself.
"Ball-striking wise I had a lot of strong suits but certainly some weak points as well. Every year it's about finding where I was down the year before and try to work that back up.
"Each part of my game at some point in my career has been the best in the world, so I know that I'm capable of getting each part of my game to that level, which is reassuring."
Spieth plays alongside Gary Woodland and Bryson DeChambeau for the first two rounds at Waialae Country Club in the Sony Open, where he finished third in 2017.
