Jordan Spieth Cracks Driver, Will Play Masters with Replacement

Peter Kostis Talks Spieth, Day, Mickelson on GOLF LIVE
On GOLF LIVE, Peter Kostis joins Jessica Marksbury to talk about why there is no reason to worry about Jordan Spieth, Jason Day's chances at Augusta, and Phil Mickelson's prospects of winning in his 40s.

Jordan Spieth will begin his Masters title defense without the driver that won two majors in 2015.

Speaking at the Golf Writers Assocation of America's dinner, Spieth said he cracked his Titleist 915 D2 driver on Wednesday while practicing at Augusta National and will play the Masters with a replacement driver. 

He also said at the dinner that the new driver is better than the old one, but Spieth has had the 915 D2 in play since his 2014 Australian Open win. What has he accomplished in the 17 months since? Seven wins worldwide, including two majors. 

The defending champ was grinding on the range until late Wednesday evening trying to find the right combination in his replacement driver. He's got until Thursday morning to sort things out: He tees off at 9:48 a.m.
