Spieth aiming to fine-tune ball-striking

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Jordan Spieth was the Masters champion with another victory and a couple of runner-up finishes when he got to Colonial last year, a few weeks before winning the U.S. Open.

This time at Hogan's Alley, at the tournament now known as the Dean & Deluca Invitational, Spieth arrives with one win and his only runner-up finish this season coming after he squandered a five-stroke lead on the back nine when trying to defend his title at Augusta.

"Last year, I was, I think, making a few more mid-range putts than I have this year, but overall I feel like I'm still stroking it the same. I feel like the way I'm striking the ball has been the same," Spieth said before playing a pro-am round Wednesday with Bill Murray. "Recently, I've been trying to get back to the consistency my swing was at last year, so I'd say maybe that's it. Just a little bit in the fine-tuning of the ball-striking, but it's coming around now."
