Jordan Spieth Flies Swing Coach Back to Augusta for Final Round

Masters 2016: Jordan Spieth Shoots 74 for One-Shot Lead
Defending Masters Champion Jordan Spieth shot his first ever over-par round at the Masters, and leads by one stroke heading into Sunday.

Jordan Spieth's swing coach is making the trek from Dallas, back to Augusta National Golf Club to work with the Masters leader on the range.

According to reports, Cameron McCormick had left Georgia earlier in the week but is back to guide the 22-year-old to what could be consecutive green jackets, and first ever back-to-back, wire-to-wire win at the Masters.

Spieth started the week strong, holding a two-shot lead after round 1 in gusty conditions and never surrendering it. But over the course of the next two rounds, some miss-hits off the tee and approach shots left short have given the field a second chance at taking down golf's Golden Boy.

It appears that Spieth brought back the troops to help him make history Sunday.

The defending masters champion tees off at 2:45 with Smylie Kaufman, who is one shot back.
