You know who it's good to be right now?

It's good to be Jordan Spieth.

I'm just sitting at home reading about golf, writing some posts on Tuesday and in the span of a few hours Spieth posted photos of himself playing Pine Valley and Augusta National -- the two best golf courses in the United States according to Golf Digest.

According to the Twitter feed of Cameron McCormick (who is Spieth's coach) the duo played both courses on Tuesday. He said Spieth shot a 67 at Pine Valley and that they're playing 18 more at Augusta on Wednesday.

Clearly the dream lives on for Spieth.

He wrote on his Instagram page "The back nine at Augusta this evening. Only group on the course." 

The only group on the course. Augusta, all to yourself. Wow.

I fully expect to see Cypress Point, Shinnecock Hills, and Oakmont to come rolling across his feed in the next few days.

Also, you know what's cool? He's pacing himself but he's clearly enjoying the ride. I read an article about Brandt Snedeker one time talking about how he loves to play golf when he's on vacation and how rare that is for PGA Tour players -- most like to eschew the grind for other activities.

Spieth is clearly cut from the same cloth and I think it will serve him well over the course of his career.
