It doesn’t always mean you played your best, just that you played well enough to get a W.

Jordan Spieth was one of the lucky ones this week at the Presidents Cup, going 5-0 and setting the tone early on Sunday by putting the first singles point on the board for the US in a 4-3 win over Australia’s Cam Davis.

A 5-0 record is the holy grail of a cup competition, with many not picked to play all five games, let alone win all the games they play.

Only 10 players have gone 5-0 at the Ryder and Presidents Cups, Jordon Spieth joins Gardner Dickinson, Arnold Palmer, Larry Nelson, Francesco Molinari, Mark O’Meara, Shigeki Maruyama, Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, Branden Grace, and Dustin Johnson.

Ironically, Spieth was 0-6-1 in singles before Sunday’s match with the 27-year-old international rookie.

“It feels perfect,” Spieth said afterward. Last year I drew with Tommy (Fleetwood) but I haven’t won yet.’

Before reaching singles, Jordon Spieth teamed up with his good friend Justin Thomas.

The duo played four matches together and none of the four games were in doubt, with the two friends leading in 50 of the 64 holes they played and only trailing in three.

“I put 10 times today,” Thomas said, paying one of the biggest compliments after playing two sessions on Saturday. “I played two matches and hit 10 putts. I think it’s pretty absurd legitimately think I took more of my coin than gave heels. partner is very good.”

Spieth showed much of his old days over the first three days, with long putts and chip-ins off the green.

But Spieth knew his dismal singles record, and after starting with two bogeys in the first two holes of his singles match against Davis and falling 2 over, Spieth dug himself a hole that made it much harder to win or tie.

jordon Spieth quickly made good the deficit, making a 24-foot putt on the par-3 4th and another birdie from 19 feet from the fringe on the par-4 5th to tie the match.

After losing on the 8th hole, Spieth made three consecutive birdies from the 11th to the 13th to set the stage for his first singles victory.

“I had a great back nine,” Spieth said. “I hit a really nice shot on the 11th and made the hole. Hit it into the middle of the green after winning the 9th and having a nice tie on the 10th. That’s where the game moved, that’s where the birdie was. I made three birdies in a row on this back nine and was trying to hit the greens.”

Spieth ended his birdie drive with a 46-foot birdie putt at the 13th, and the victory was set in stone.

“It’s perfect,” Spieth said after the win. “if you go out very early because I did almost every team event on Sunday, they are looking for red on the board, and it is good to finally provide it.
