When one door closes, another opens.

Screen Shot 2017-02-13 at 11.02.43 AMAt least that’s the way professional golf feels at the moment. Jordan Spieth is one month older than Tiger Woods was when they both reached their ninth PGA Tour victory.

Spieth’s Sunday stroll at Pebble Beach looked effortless and on Saturday, his putting was as otherworldly as it can be sometimes. After a year of struggling with his swing – and still winning twice on the PGA Tour – Spieth appears to have control of his game again. He came into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am No. 6 in the world, a ranking we can expect to steadily improve as we get into the heart of the season. He certainly looked better than the sixth-best player in the world, even on a mortal-looking putting day that Spieth displayed on Sunday while he protected a big lead.

Some will say good riddance and others will think his fade from view brings sadness. Regardless of which side you stand on, there’s no denying he is one of golf’s two greatest players ever and we will not see his like in most of our lifetimes.

In the meantime, let us celebrate the game’s twentysomething stars, either emerging or established. It’s an exciting time and the best players in the world are pretty darned good. Those other than Spieth will have something to say about who wins golf’s biggest events in the coming months.

The Masters is closer than you think. Let us count the days.
