Jordan Spieth reveals score he wants to shoot during the final two rounds of the John Deere Classic

It’s been a frustrating season for Jordan Spieth, and his inconsistent form has shown no sign of letting up at this week’s John Deere Classic.

Despite making the cut and sitting at six under, the American is T47 and eight shots back of leader Aaron Rai.

After claiming he was going to attack the favourable conditions, the three-time major champion hasn’t looked overly aggressive during his first two rounds.

Now, speaking during his post-round press conference on Friday, the 2015 Masters champion has revealed what score he intends to shoot over the weekend.

Spieth initially shared his frustration after once again flirting with the cut line, a common theme of his 2024 season.

“Unfortunately, I’ve been at that position [scramble for the cut] far too often this year, and it’s very frustrating and annoying,” he explained.

“Once you make it to Saturday, it’s a freeing feeling. Just being this far behind on a course where it’s not coming back to you is a tough place to be.”

Spieth claimed he would try to hit the 14-under mark over the weekend but admitted that an overall score of 20-under is unlikely to be enough.
