That noise? It's softened considerably during the previous year, and the spotlight that accompanied him to Quail Hallow shines a little less brightly on Spieth in St. Louis.

Most significantly, Woods also led the Open at Carnoustie with eight holes to play, only to double bogey the 11th and drop another shot on the next as playing partner Francesco Molinari went on to lift the Claret Jug.
