Jordan Spieth has an opportunity to do something this week only five golfers have done in the history of the game, but he's not feeling any pressure to win the career Grand Slam at Quail Hollow.

"This is a chance to complete the career Grand Slam; I'm here, so I'm going to go ahead and try," Spieth said at his Wednesday press conference. "But I believe I'm going to have plenty of chances, and I'm young enough to believe in my abilities that it will happen at some point."

While Spieth will certainly have plenty of opportunities to win the career Slam, it's his only chance to beat one of Tiger Woods' records. A win would make the 24-year-old American the youngest to achieve the career Slam, beating Woods' mark by six months.

"Do I have to be the youngest? No, I don't feel that kind of pressure. Would it be really cool? Absolutely," added Spieth. "And I don't come to a tournament unless I plan on giving it my all in preparation to have a chance and to ultimately close a tournament out."

After some midseason struggles with the putter, Spieth arrives in Charlotte, North Carolina at the top of his game and totally at ease, thanks to winning two of his last three starts on tour.

"I'm free-rolling. And it feels good. I'm about as kind of free and relaxed at a major than I think I've ever felt."

Spieth begins his quest Thursday at 8:25 a.m. ET with Brooks Koepka and Sergio Garcia off tee No. 10.
