More to come says Spieth

Former Open champion Jordan Spieth believes his wait to "end up on top" might soon be over after back-to-back top-ten finishes on the PGA Tour.

Spieth could have felt disheartened after finishing tied for third at last week's AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-Am having been two shots clear after 54 holes.

But, hot on the heels of a fourth place at the Phoenix Open, the former world number one saw only positives and he is convinced that his time in the doldrums will soon be over.

I'm as confident as I've been in a long time.

The American appeared to have the world at his feet in 2017 when he won The Open at Birkdale, claiming his third Major triumph shortly before his 24th birthday.

But that was not only his last Major triumph but his last win of any sort and Spieth is working hard to end his three-and-a-half-year trophy drought.

After missing the cut at the Farmers Open at the end of January, he had dropped to number 92 in the world rankings and he admits he is still only playing with his "B game".

But that has been good enough to see him contend at Scottsdale and Pebble Beach and those results give him hope that he can challenge again at this week's Genesis Invitational at Riviera.

"I'm as confident as I've been in a long time," Spieth told reporters. "I'm legitimately going around with maybe my 'B' game and I know that stepping on the first tee.

"It's pretty awesome that I'm still significantly far off of where I want to be and am able to be leading the tournament through 54 [holes]. I'll end up on top soon enough."

Spieth is 36.00 to win the Genesis Invitational where Masters champion Dustin Johnson is 6.50.
