Jordan Spieth is on fire lately.

In the field at this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after winning in each of his last two starts -- the Travelers Championship with a bunker hole-out in a playoff and the Open Championship by playing the final five holes in 5 under -- the just-turned 24-year-old has showed no signs of slowing down.

At Firestone on Thursday in the first round, Spieth made putts from 50 feet and longer on two consecutive holes -- the fifth and sixth -- his 14th and 15th holes of the round.

Here's the putt for birdie on No. 5:

And the bomb on No. 6:

After that second birdie putt, Spieth went to 3 under for the day and two off the lead.

Next week at Quail Hollow in the PGA Championship, Spieth has the chance to become the youngest player in history to complete the career Grand Slam.
