World number one Jordan Spieth says he “feels good” following a recent break going into this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
The 22-year-old American, the reigning Masters and US Open champion, clocked up the air miles in the opening month of 2016 as he followed up his win in Hawaii with gruelling trips to Abu Dhabi and Singapore.
Spieth admitted to feeling tired during the Singapore Open, where he had to settle for second place behind South Korean winner Song Young-han.
However, he has since had an opportunity to recharge his batteries and is now relishing this week’s return to action in California from Thursday, where the professionals link up with celebrities.
“I feel great. I feel very rested now,” said Spieth. “It’s amazing what a solid week back here of kind of rest and regeneration will do. My speeds are where they need to be, my rest is back, everything feels good.
“It was obviously a tough travel schedule to do, when typically we make our trips overseas in the fall. But I had a lot of fun. Two very easy places to travel to, great hospitality. A little tired in between the two events. And then since then, I’ve really regenerated and I feel a hundred per cent.”
Spieth is 6.00 to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, while he can be backed at 6.50 to retain his Masters title in Augusta in April.
