Jordan-Spieth-bunker

Jordan Spieth won the 2017 Travelers Championship on Sunday, and he did it in as dramatic of fashion as you could imagine.

Spieth ended up in a sudden death playoff with Daniel Berger. After badly pulling his tee shot into a tree and catching a major break to land in the fairway, Spieth still found himself more than 220 yards on the par-4 18th. He hit a 5-iron and came up short of the green, landing in a bunker.

That wasn’t an issue for the two-time major champion:

Yup, Spieth holed out for birdie to win the playoff. Berger still had a putt left after Spieth’s ball rolled in, but he missed the putt and ended up with a par.

At least one person knew Spieth was going to hole the bunker shot — his good buddy Justin Thomas.

There have been times in the past where Spieth was furious he ended up in a bunker (video here), but this wasn’t one of them. He nearly holed out from the same spot in the final hole of regulation to avoid going to a playoff, so he obviously felt comfortable with the spot.
