Amidst final round struggles that have dropped him to the bottom of the leaderboard, Jordan Spieth is hoping the back nine suddenly contains some hazard-less short-distance par 5s.

After solid performances left him in second place entering the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, Spieth has struggled on Sunday, with three bogeys dropping into a tie for 8th place halfway through the round. The misfortune has Spieth hoping the back nine of the TPC Four Seasons was changed overnight to include some 200-yard holes with straightforward greens and easy pin placements.

“You never know, maybe these last few holes will be less of a slog,” Spieth could be overheard muttering to his caddie. “I just need a couple birdies to get me going.”

Spieth could later be heard, after an errant tee shot, hoping the pin had been moved into the sand trap.
