June 25, 2017 – Jordan Spieth – Travelers Championship

By: Global Golf Post

For a few weeks, Jordan Spieth had been saying that he was closer to winning again than his results were showing.

Spieth backed up his contention at TPC River Highlands, leading virtually from start to finish to pick up his 10th career PGA Tour victory.

Titleist-915-D2-Driver-3At 23 years, 10 months old, Spieth becomes the second-youngest player in modern PGA Tour history to have 10 wins, trailing only Tiger Woods, who picked up his 10th win when he was four months younger.

The tournament could have gotten away from Spieth at multiple points during the closing stretch. Twice on the back nine – at Nos. 13 and 15 – Spieth had tee shots hang up in the thick grass rather than bounce into water hazards.

Spieth missed three short putts but also made a 16-foot birdie putt at No. 15 that he thought he had missed badly enough that he was walking toward the hole when his ball surprisingly fell in.

After leaving his approach in the same bunker from which he had just saved par to get in the playoff, Spieth added another brilliant moment to his career highlight reel, holing the sand shot then chest-bumping his caddie, Michael Greller, in celebration.

“I don’t know if I’ll ever have another moment like that again,” said Spieth, who won his first Tour title, the 2013 John Deere Classic, by holing a bunker shot to get into a playoff.

Daniel Berger shot 67 to force overtime as he sought his second Tour win in three weeks.

“It’s Jordan doing Jordan things,” said Berger, whose long putt from the left fringe to extend the playoff narrowly missed.
