Jordan Spieth Holes Out to Win Travelers
The legend of Jordan Spieth grows and grows.
Spieth joined Tiger Woods as the only players to win 10 PGA tournaments before his 24th birthday, doing so in dazzling fashion to win the Travelers Championship in a sudden-death playoff.
After a tee shot into the bunker in his first playoff hole against Daniel Berger, Spieth holed out from 60 feet, tossing his club and rushing to chest jump his caddie.
Berger caught Spieth by birdying three of his last six holes. After Spieth settled down, Berger narrowly missed a 50-foot putt of his own that would have forced a second playoff hole. Spieth has racked up 10 wins since July of 2013, the last nine since March of 2015, a span of just 27 months.
Spieth takes home 500 FedEx Cup points and $1.224 million. Charley Hoffman and Danny Lee finished tied for third at 10-under. Hoffman charged up the leaderboard with a 66 but could’t catch the leaders.
