Video: Spieth wins green jacket - again

JORDAN Spieth won the right to hang on to his green jacket for now during a TV appearance in America this week.

HOW do you win the green jacket twice in one year? Courtesy of a mini golf putting competition, of course.

World Number One Jordan Spieth was on the television talk show trail this week helping promote the Drive, Chip and Putt initiative when he was challenged to a putting competition by a pair of breakfast show hosts.

Live! with Kelly and Michael co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan perhaps didn't realise who they were dealing with when they made the bet, but it soon became clear to them.

As the TV types struggled, Spieth calmly two-putted his way through the makeshift three-hole course set up in the studio and claimed a resounding victory.

While it was all a bit of light-hearted fun, Spieth will no doubt be hoping his form carries over to the real event in three weeks' time, particularly after some recent struggles.

The 22-year-old Texan hasn't cracked the top 15 in his last four PGA Tour events and is skipping this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational as he times his run to The Masters.

The Drive Chip and Putt was founded by Augusta National and the USGA to help encourage more kids to take up golf, the reward for those who qualify a place in the final at the game's most famous course on Sunday before the Masters.
