Behind almost every golf champion, there’s a golf coach. For Jordan Spieth, that man is Cameron McCormick.
A native of Australia, McCormick first came to the U.S. to play junior college golf, and he eventually found himself coaching one of the best players in the world. Somewhere in between, he failed as a golfer (his words!) and studied the game’s greatest teachers.
McCormick joins the GOLF.com Podcast this week to discuss his coaching tactics, his own prep for the Masters and his two-time major winning client. You can find that and more in the podcast below.
