Preview Sony Open Round 1

Jordan Spieth still has a lot to prove, if not to us, then to himself. At 29, the longtime PGA Tour star already has three major titles and 13 Tour wins on his resume. But many of those accomplishments came early in his career.

Speith experienced a lengthy slowdown in his performance that saw him fail to capture a victory in 2018, 2019 and 2020. But he finally re-entered the winner’s circle at the 2021 Valero Texas Open, then followed it up with another win at last year’s RBC Heritage.

Now Spieth is hoping to spend another year contending and winning on Tour, with his sights set on this week’s Sony Open.

Spieth will get his opening round started at 1 pm ET on Thursday with Billy Horschel and Zach Johnson. You can stream the first round via PGA Tour Live on ESPN+ beginning at 12 pm ET, or watch the telecast on Golf Channel starting at 7:30 pm ET.
