Pebble Beach is one of the most scenic spots in the country, but it’s also a place where the weather can get wild. In a hurry.

We’ve seen golfers and celebrities struggling with layers of raingear through the years of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am as flagsticks whip in the Pacific wind. And one PGA Tour star got prepared for such a scenario by attempting โ€“ and pulling off โ€“ quite a creative shot during Wednesday’s practice round.

As golf fans know, the famed par-3 7th is listed as about 100 metres on the scorecard, but because it juts out into Stillwater Cove, it can play like a beast. So with the breeze picking up, Spieth went up in club choice. Way up. Check out this slicing 4-iron he hit that found the tiny putting surface:

That’s pretty impressive. And it’s also another sign that Spieth is rounding back into the form that made him world No.1 and a three-time Major champ by his 24th birthday. A third-round 61 in Phoenix had Golf Twitter buzzing and now he returns to a place where he won by four shots four years ago.

He sure looks ready to contend at lovely Carmel-by-the-Sea โ€“ especially if the not-so-lovely weekend forecast comes to fruition. It looks rough. But it looks like Jordan will be ready. Hope the rest of the guys packed some warm clothes โ€“ and a piercing ball flight.
