Spieth lauded by peers after sensational victory

By PGA Tour News on Mon, Jun 26 2017 2:03 AM

CROMWELL, Conn. – Jordan Spieth looked over the lip of the bunker, 61 feet, 5 inches from the hole. Fellow playoff combatant and friend Daniel Berger waited for him. Jordan Lewites, Spieth’s co-manager, watching from just up the hill left of the 18th green, leaned into Spieth’s pal Ryan Palmer, who had finished his round. “Jordan wants to go home,” Lewites said. “This is going in.” The rest, as they say, is history. Spieth hit perhaps the most electric shot of the PGA TOUR season so far, a walk-off hole-out to capture the Travelers Championship in his first time playing the tournament. His 10th TOUR title shook TPC River Highlands as Spieth threw his lob wedge out of the bunker and crashed into his caddie Michael Greller. “Unbelievable,” Palmer said, speaking for many. “Jordan does Jordan things,” Berger said. “I went nuts,” Spieth said. “That was fun.” Spieth’s latest TOUR victory brought echoes of his first, at the 2013 John Deere Classic, where he got into a playoff by holing...

Spieth wins Travelers playoff from bunker

By PGA Tour News on Sun, Jun 25 2017 7:28 PM

CROMWELL, Conn. – Notes and observations from Sunday’s electrifying final round of the Travelers Championship, where Jordan Spieth holed out from the bunker to dispatch Daniel Berger in a sudden-death playoff. Charley Hoffman (66) and Danny Lee (67) tied for third place, two shots back. For more coverage from TPC River Highlands, click here for the Daily Wrap-up. BERGER STUNNED BY FINISH After successfully defending his title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic earlier this month, Daniel Berger was vying for his second TOUR win in a span of three weeks. He came close, but settled for second when Spieth holed his bunker shot from 61 feet, 5 inches on the first playoff hole, the par-4 18th. The gallery roared, and Spieth motioned for fans to quiet down for Berger to attempt his own unlikely birdie, a long putt from the left fringe. Berger missed on the high side, and it was over. “I played great today,” said Berger, who shot a back-nine 32 to force extra holes with Spieth. “I played the...

Spieth holes bunker shot to win Travelers playoff

By PGA Tour News on Sun, Jun 25 2017 7:23 PM

CROMWELL, Conn. -- Jordan Spieth needed an extra hole, a little bit of luck and an amazing final shot to finish off a wire-to-wire victory in the Travelers Championship. The two-time major champion holed out from 60 feet for birdie from a greenside bunker on the first hole of a playoff with Daniel Berger on Sunday at TPC River Highlands. The 23-year-old Texan joined Tiger Woods as the only PGA TOUR players with 10 victories in the era since World War II. Woods won 15 times before he turned 24. "That was one for the ages," said Spieth, also the winner at Pebble Beach in February. Spieth held a one-stroke edge after each of the first three rounds. He closed with an even-par 70 to match Berger -- who birdied three of the final six holes for a 67 -- at 12-under 268. Berger, the Memphis winner two weeks ago before missing the cut last week at the U.S. Open, just missed a 50-foot putt from off the 18th green left that would have forced a second playoff hole. "Jordan does Jordan things,"...

Spieth scrambles to save round, lead at Travelers

By PGA Tour News on Sun, Jun 25 2017 12:55 AM

CROMWELL, Conn. – Notes and observations from Saturday’s third round of the Travelers Championship, where Jordan Spieth birdied three of his last four holes to shoot 66 and keep the lead. Boo Weekley had a 5-under 65 to reach 11 under, a shot back, while Daniel Berger (66) came in at 9 under, in solo third as he aims for his second win in the last three weeks. For more coverage from TPC River Highlands, click here for the Daily Wrap-up. SPIETH LEANS ON PAR SAVES Jordan Spieth made three birdies in the last four holes to maintain the solo lead for the third straight day in this, his first career start at the Travelers Championship. Still, what stood out to him were two par saves. He missed the green right at the 490-yard, par-4 fourth hole, but got up and down with a chip and a tap-in par. At the 227-yard, par-3 fifth, Spieth splashed out of the right greenside bunker and made a 16-foot putt. He didn’t even need to putt at the sixth hole, chipping in for birdie from 28 feet. “I...

Spieth sets his sights on Travelers victory

By PGA Tour News on Sat, Jun 24 2017 10:53 PM

CROMWELL, Conn. -- Jordan Spieth continues to play just a little better than anyone else at the Travelers Championship. The 23-year-old Texan closed with a 20-foot birdie putt for a 4-under 66 on Saturday, giving him a one-stroke lead for the third straight round at TPC River Highlands. After predicting earlier that it would take a score of 16 under to win, the two-time major champion took a 12-under 198 total into the final round. Boo Weekley was second after a 65. The 43-year-old Weekley, playing just in front of Spieth, birdied five of the last eight holes, basking in the chants of "Boooo! Boooo!" from the raucous gallery. Spieth bogeyed Nos. 13 and 14, but matched Weekley with three birdies on the final four holes, capping it with the final shot of the round from below the hole. "It's in the shadow," Spieth said. "I'm looking to hit the putt at the right speed. If it goes in, great, if it doesn't, so be it, tap it in. With a few feet to go it was going to have a chance and it...

The First Look: Quicken Loans National

By PGA Tour News on Sat, Jun 24 2017 12:52 AM

• COURSE: TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, 7,139 yards, par 70. Once an annual PGA TOUR stop, the facility returns to host duties with a new look that followed a two-year, $20 million overhaul. The original 1986 layout was designed as host of the old Kemper Open, but players never warmed to the course, which also was plagued by drainage and turf issues. The tournament’s demise after 2006 paved the way for massive renovations, with every hole modified in some fashion and major changes to at least a dozen. The new course opened in 2009 and staged the Senior PLAYERS Championship a year later to positive reviews. This will be the Quicken Loans National’s first visit, as the tournament ventures away from Congressional CC in odd-numbered years. • FEDEXCUP: Winner receives 500 points. • CHARITY: The Tiger Woods Foundation, with proceeds earmarked for two Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses in Washington, D.C., along with 25 Tiger Woods Scholars who come from the D.C. area. • FIELD WATCH:...
