Jordan Spieth will be keen to improve his form at the US Open which will take place at the Winged Foot Golf Club this week (17-20 September).
The American golfer has struggled this year having finished tied for 55th place in the Farmers Insurance Open in January.
Spieth then fell outside the top 50 in the world rankings for the first time since his first season on tour.

Spieth carded a one-under 69 in the final round to finish with a total of 275 (-5) and win the 2015 US Open by one stroke over Dustin Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen.
Spieth, who was 21-years-old at the time, became the youngest US Open champion in 92 years, since Bobby Jones in 1923. 
Then-reigning Masters champion, Spieth also became the youngest to win the Masters and US Open in the same year, passing Tiger Woods, who won both in 2002 at age 26. 
Others to win the first two majors of the year were Craig Wood (1941), Ben Hogan (1951, 1953), Arnold Palmer (1960), and Jack Nicklaus (1972).

Spieth recently opened up about his struggles ahead of the US Open where he will be looking to clinch his maiden major since 2017.
How often does a guy want to hear the question: “What the heck happened to your game?” 
“The questioning has only come up because of the amount of success I’ve had,” Spieth said on Palm Beach Post.
“It actually could be looked at positively. You’ve just got to block out the noise and believe in yourself.”
The 2020 US Open offers a $12.5 million purse with a winner's share of $2.25 million.
