FILE - In this July 1, 2016, file photo, Jordan Spieth tees off on the third hole during the second round of the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. Heading into the PGA Championship the last week of July, Spieth is having a very good year, and he needs to be reminded of that every now and then. He already has won two times, including in his home state of Texas. He was one bad swing away from winning the Masters again. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)

Jordan Spieth walked with purpose down the long corridor toward his locker, not stopping to look at the photos and scorecards that cover more than a century of golf history at Baltusrol. Dating to 1934 when the Masters began, Spieth is among 14 players who have won two majors in one year. Only five of those players ever won a single major the following year, and it’s an elite group – Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson and Tiger Woods.
