Jordan Spieth has a flair for the dramatic.
After watching a decent lead slip away on Sunday at the Travelers Championship, Spieth found himself tied with Daniel Berger at 12-under heading into the 18th hole.
On his second shot of the Par 4, Spieth left his approach short and found himself in a steep bunker, needing a par to force a playoff. So naturally, he got a par:
Then, on the same hole to start the playoff, Spieth's second shot once again found the bunker. Meanwhile, Berger sat off the edge of the green, looking at a long chance for birdie.
Spieth would need another close escape if he wanted any chance of forcing a second playoff hole.
Or he could just hole out:
That is ridiculous, Jordan.
Berger's birdie putt to tie missed wide, and Spieth became the second-youngest pro to reach 10 victories on the PGA Tour, just behind Tiger Woods, and ahead of Jack Nicklaus. Not bad company.
"For the bunker shot to go in, that was awesome," Spieth said after the win. "I don’t know if I’ll ever have a moment like that again.”
“It’s just Jordan doing Jordan things,” Berger said.
