Jordan Spieth is at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill., today for John Deere Classic Media Day.
As you may remember, Spieth picked up his first PGA Tour victory at the John Deere Classic last summer. It wasn't easy either. Spieth had to hole this ridiculous bunker shot on the 72nd hole just to earn a spot in a playoff:
Spieth would eventually outlast David Hearn and Zach Johnson after a five-hole playoff.
Fast forward to today. Spieth tweeted this out about 10 minites ago:
@JordanSpieth: Recreating the bunker shot @jdclassic during media day.. Anyone gonna believe it was the first try?
He provided a link to his Instagram account. So, here's the video evidence of Spieth recreating the bunker shot that got him into that playoff:
Umm... That's a pretty darned good recreation, isn't it?
