Jordan Spieth, the 2024 U.S. Open champion at Pinehurst? An interesting thought

In his always entertaining #AskAlan mailbag at, Alan Shipnuck was asked to consider how many major championships Jordan Spieth might finish his career with. And while it’s clearly fun speculation that can go in any number of ways, it’s an interesting thought as well to try to peer into the elusive crystal ball.

One part of Alan’s answer might interest you – how Spieth and his game match up for the 2024 U.S. Open on Pinehurst No. 2:

Spieth was competitive at the 2014 U.S. Open, opening the tournament with a 1-under 69 and hanging around the top 10 before finishing in a tie for 17th. A year later, he won the Open at Chambers Bay.

It’s a fun exercise. What do you think? Is Spieth Pinehurst’s Open champion in 2024? And if not Spieth, want to go on record with a pick now?
