Is Jordan Spieth the Novak Djokovic of golf?

Just like Novak Djokovic, Jordan Spieth is  precise, consistent and unflappable under pressure.  The quality of his golf is undoubtedly admirable, but is it fun to watch?  Sport thrives on the drama of intense rivalries and human fallibility, and sporting dominance is only revered when delivered in emphatic style by a big personality like a Muhammad Ali, a Tiger Woods or a Roger Federer.  Otherwise it’s just plain boring.  Let’s hope for the sake of this year’s Masters – many people’s favourite golf tournament – that the big hitters, messrs. Mcllroy, Day, Mickelson, Johnson et al., can get their act together pronto and provide some much needed competition, otherwise this venerable old tournament could be over before Day 2 is done, and that would be no fun at all.
