JORDAN Spieth admitted at the WGC-Bridgestone that he was still seething over his T4 at St Andrews.

Finishing one shot out of the playoff left the now-22-year-old to wonder what might have been.

Then again, when your preseason goals included making the Presidents Cup team, contending in at least one Major and making the cut in all four—as Spieth noted last week—his 2015 has already been a massive success.

Even without the Grand Slam as motivation, he has a chance to make history at the US PGA Championship.

A victory lets him match Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods as the only golfers to win three men’s professional Majors in one year.

It would also give Spieth licence to claim the greatest single Major season ever, rivalling Woods’ epic 2000 where Tiger went fifth-win-win-win.

Just shy of winning, Spieth can become only the fourth player with top-fives in the year’s four majors.

Rickie Fowler did it last year, and Jack Nicklaus (1971, 1973) and Woods (2000, 2005) each managed the feat twice. Not bad for a guy who just wanted to make the Presidents Cup team.
