Jordan Spieth can challenge for 2016 golfing Grand Slam

Spieth go through American star Spieth's chances of winning each Major title in 2016

Jordan Spieth was instrumental last year, exploding onto the golfing scene. At the US Masters in Augusta, he blew the rest of the field away with a record finish on the pristine course.

Swiftly following up with a win at the US Open, the American surged up the rankings, and subsequently ended 2015 as the world number one.

Unsurprisingly, Spieth now heads the betting for nearly every Major in 2016 and will be looking to do what he couldn’t last year and win the Grand Slam.

At 11/2 with bet365 to claim the US Masters one more, he is the undisputed favourite and is likely to relish his chance to defend this.

Spieth is 6/1 to with SkyBet to retain his US Open crown, which he won in difficult circumstances last year in a windy environment, highlighting his capability to play in adverse weather conditions, something which can work well in his favour against a highly competitive contingent.

Last year, his initial form in the opening couple of days cost him in The Open at St Andrews and despite an impressive rally in the last two rounds, he was unable to finish any better than joint-fourth.

This year, he boasts odds of 7/1 with Ladbrokes to win the tournament, which will be held at Royal Troon, also a Links course, so the 22-year-old will look to build on his 2015 challenge.

The Major year culminates in the US PGA Championship which Spieth was incredibly unlucky not to win in 2015. A finishing tally of 17-under par would usually be good enough to win any tournament, though Jason Day just eclipsed the American.

This time, he is 6/1 with Coral to emerge victorious, which would complete the Grand Slam, that he was so unlucky not to achieve last year, though there is no doubt, he has the talent to accomplish this.
