I’m Back! – Spieth
Man, it’s been a long wait. To be exact, it’s been a four year wait.
But, it’s been well worth it to see young Jordan Spieth (pictured) cranking it out again to score a spectacular win at the Valero Texas Open.
The American ace has been winless since The Open in 2017. But he forgot about the drought as he secured his 12th PGA Tour victory, finishing two shots clear of Charley Hoffman, who started the round two shots behind Spieth and Matt Wallace. Wallace finished third on 14-under, four shots shy of Spieth, two of Hoffman.
One must not forget that this was just not another ordinary tour win – Spieth, since he broke out on the PGA Tour has gone down in history as the second youngest player to become world No. 1. He was also the second youngest to reach 10 PGA tour wins and in that same year he was the second youngest to win three Majors.
After this incredible run of success, Spieth hit a slippery grease patch and went into a sustained slump.
But that slump is over as he charged back today in the final round with a score of 66 which included seven birdies and just one bogey.
“I felt really good from the word go today,” Spieth said afterwards. “I felt like I wanted to come out and have some fun.”
He will now be on the first tee at the Masters as a hot favourite.
Welcome back Jordan!
