The Masters champ during a practice round at TPC Harding Park on Monday
Jordan Spieth kicked off his week at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship in a pretty chill manner on Monday. He took a flight on Monday morning from Dallas to San Francisco, and showed up to the driving range at TPC Harding Park by late morning, where he hit balls in front of about a dozen fans, all of whom had their iPhones in hand as they watched the reigning Masters champion warm up. As he walked to the shuttle for the putting green, he signed a few autographs.
After rolling just a few putts — and exchanging a few words with world no. 1 Rory McIlroy — he hopped on another golf cart to the eighth hole, where he met up with Ryan Palmer and Gary Woodland to play an 11-hole practice round. It was his first look at the course.
