In the cold light of day it's easy to analyse, but we simply were not in the pressure cooker of the final round at Augusta.

But it still remains strange for such a deliberate and purposeful player why Jordan Spieth would try to take on the Sunday pin on 12.  I'm no Augusta expert but even I know it has claimed many down through the years and the way to play that is to hit the centre of the green.

Yeah, it's a tough one, Spieth said after.  I knew the lead was 5 with nine holes to play.  And I knew that those two bogeys weren't going to hurt me.  But I didn't take that extra deep breath and really focus on my line on 12.  Instead I went up and I just put a quick swing on it.
Maybe at 22, Spieth still has a ways to go.  The tee shot was poor but the wedge that followed it was a manifestation of his year to date.
 I learned what I learned in 2014.  And it's just stay committed.  12 is a 150‑yard shot and I feel I can bleed it next to the hole, and it's a stock 9‑iron for me.  But that hole for whatever reason just has people's number.  Stay committed behind the bunker.  That's about ‑‑ it was really one swing.
