AT&T Byron Nelson: Jordan Spieth staying patient with his game

"I have dreamed of playing in this event ever since my dad took me to watch when I was eight", Spieth wrote to tournament director George Conant, going on to recall seeing Phil Mickelson up close at the event.

"Obviously a change of pace now this year over here at Trinity Forest and everything looks great", Spieth said.

"I've stayed the course, had a lot of patience recently".

"Everything feels like it's progressing really nicely".

It was not so long ago that three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, 24, was trying to make his way into a PGA Tour event.

Jordan Spieth has emphasised how positive he is feeling about his game ahead of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson in his native Dallas, declaring that "everything is starting to fall in place".

Spieth said that gives him a significant advantage over "anybody else in the field, having been there from the day they sprigged the greens". I had a lot of in between numbers on shots, and some putts that were. It turned out to be a good call, Spieth made the cut and was tied for seventh place after 54 holes before finishing the tournament in a tie for 16th place. "Whether putts have gone in or not I've had better strokes". "At this point that's kind of what I'm focused on here".

Here's everything you need to know for the first round.

"Is it hard [to play four consecutive weeks]? No". He had shot 66 five other times this season, including the first round of The Masters (he finished third). Spieth thinks the course will bring a new dimension to the event. With his confidence in his game sky high, he's excited about the next few weeks.

"I was very comfortable on Sunday with Tiger", Spieth said. "This is the only time I play four in a row in a season, and I like doing that. That's what I'm looking forward to".
