Momentum Carrying Over From JDC to British Open for Spieth, Johnson

Golf is a game of momentum and with Jordan Spieth's win last week at the John Deere Classic, its seems like he has plenty of that.

Now playing at the British Open, the 19-year-old is continuing to make a name for himself

After the first round in his first open event, Spieth ended the day tied with Tiger Woods and some say the John Deere Classic has a lot to do with that.

Tpc Deere Run Golf Pro, Andy Stoterau says as the game of golf changes, transitions from course to course are a lot easier than they used to be allowing players to stay in the swing of things.

The transition and momentum have seem to stick with JDC runner-up, Zach Johnson as well who was leading the field after the first round.

Stoterau says, “I think [him playing well at JDC] has built his confidence up and now he is playing in the British and he is playing really well.  That carry over is great.”

So for these two, that carry over from the JDC might be a launching pad for success.

After the first round, Johnson ended the day at the top of the leader board and Spieth ended tied for ninth.
