Spieth Falls Short in Singapore

Jordan Spieth just missed his second win of the 2016 season, taking second at the Singapore Open Monday behind South Korea’s Song Young-han.

The final round was suspended by a thunderstorm, which led to an extraordinarily early start. Spieth had one hole left – and drained a 5-foot birdie putt to finish with a 66 on the round and an 11-under 273 over all.

Song started on No. 12 and scored a particularly difficult birdie on No. 16 to move into the lead by a stroke, then knocked in back-to-back pars on 17 and 18 to take the title.

Although the Asian Tour event doesn’t count on his official ledger, Spieth has now finished in the top 7 of all five events he’s played this year – first, fourth, and seventh on the PGA Tour, fifth on the European Tour, and second on Monday.
