Jordan Spieth

There were a stretch of holes on Sunday at the Travelers Championship where not much was going Jordan Spieth's way. And then, finally, he dropped a birdie putt at the 15th hole that he didn't think had a chance.

On the 13th and 14th holes at TPC River Highlands on Sunday in the final round of the Travelers Championship, Jordan Spieth missed two putts inside of 5 feet (one for birdie, one for par).

When he arrived at the drivable, par-4 15th hole, he shared the lead with Daniel Berger at 11 under.

Using less than driver on the 299-yard hole, Spieth very nearly find the water to the left of the green. His ball stayed up in the rough on the bank, but he had no bargain with the ball sitting well above his feet.

Spieth chipped it to about 12 feet. Then, he stroked the birdie putt and his body language hinted at utter disgust with the stroke.

He began walking to the ball to tap it in when, suddenly, it dropped in the hole for a surprising birdie.

Check out Spieth's reaction:

With that unlikely (at least to Spieth) birdie, Spieth reclaimed his lead by one shot at 12 under.
