The 23-year-old is among the favourites to claim the year's first major, having won the Green Jacket in 2015 and then blowing his chances of back-to-back titles with a final-round meltdown last year.
The Augusta showpiece is widely regarded as the greatest tournament in the world and hype surrounding the prestigious event transcends golf and is all-encompassing for those involved.
Spieth's disastrous back-nine on the Sunday of the 2016 renewal let in England's Danny Willett to claim the spoils and the Texan knows that he will be questioned about what happened at length before hitting a ball in anger.
His every shot will be scrutinised and it seems that it might all be getting a bit too much for the world number five.
"No matter what happens at this year's Masters, whether I can grab the jacket or I miss the cut or I finish 30th, it will be nice having the Masters go by," Spieth said in The Dominion Post
"The Masters lives on for a year. It brings a non-golf audience into golf. And it will be nice once this year's finished from my point of view, to be brutally honest with you."
