(Will Graves/AP) — Jordan Spieth understands his meltdown at the end of the Masters will follow him. And three weeks later, Spieth’s not quite ready to say he’s over letting a five-shot lead in the final round morph into that awkward ceremony in the Butler Cabin that ended with him slipping the green jacket on Danny Willett following an ugly and very public collapse.
Still, let’s not get carried away.
“I’m not taking it very hard,” Spieth said, while attending a FedEx event in suburban Pittsburgh ahead of practice at Oakmont, where he will try to defend his U.S. Open title.

(Doug Ferguson/AP) — The summer schedule for NBC and Golf Channel is not finalized, though this much is clear: There won’t be another summer like this one from the number of big events to two premier tournaments that the networks have never broadcast.
“We’re fortunate enough to have a deep, talented bench,” said Mike McCarley, president of Golf for NBC Sports Group. “We’ve got a 12-week stretch of The Open Championship, the Olympics, the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Ryder Cup. It will be the busiest time we’ve ever had.”
