Watch Jordan Spieth hole a bunker shot to win the Travelers Championship

Watch Jordan Spieth hole a bunker shot to win the Travelers Championship

For the record, Spieth closed in 70 to finish at 12-under 268 and hold onto his one-shot 54-hole lead. Tracy had a 67, Atkins a 69 and Landry a 70 on Saturday.

They then went to the #18 tee to begin a sudden death playoff. Both fought off wind gusts that exceeded 20 miles per hour to hit 11 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens.

The American incredibly holed out from the bunker on the first play-off hole to beat countryman Daniel Berger. "If I can strike the ball like this and putt average, this is sort of what I can do", said McIlroy. Still, it was quite a lucky break. He hit an unbelievable bunker shot, and Jordan does Jordan things.

At 23 years, 333 days, Spieth is the second-youngest golfer since World War II with 10 tour wins - Woods was 23 years, 186 days - and the second fastest to hit the benchmark. The TV announcer said wind may have been a factor.

On the playoff hole, Berger hit his drive left and into the crowd behind a fairway bunker.

Berger had a chance to level and force another hole with a challenging putt, but the 24-year-old shot wide. But instead, the ball struck the pin dead solid and disappeared into the earth like a desert rat.

This time, Spieth popped it out of the bunker. Jordan Spieth holed the bunker shot.

Jordan Spieth is back in the winner's circle. That was some good timing, too, and an exciting display of emotion between player and caddy.

Acceptance not only of the shot itself but of the fact it wasn't quite as unbelievable as it seemed because of the man who launched it and then seemingly willed it to bounce right when it had no reason to do so except that it's what Spieth needed it to do.

Well, Spieth showed us all just what he's made of after a compelling Sunday in Hartford, CT, and his reaction said it all.

Weekley is looking for his fourth tour title and first since 2013.

Spieth joins Tiger Woods in the company of players to have won ten times on the PGA Tour before the age of 24.

Cosby case deadlock reflects our cultural split
In recent years, Cosby admitted to decades of philandering and to giving Quaaludes to women to induce them to have sex. And District Attorney Kevin Steele on Sunday denied a media report that Cosby had ever been offered a plea deal.

This time, Spieth holed an nearly identical bunker shot for the win.

"It felt great to graduate", said Rolle, 30. That sand shot that won the tournament today is an example. He previously did so at the 2013 John Deere Classic when he holed out on the final hole to force a three-way playoff, which he then won aged 19 to become the youngest PGA Tour victor in 82 years.

Glen Day (Little Rock) shot a 69 and was 5 under.

NOTES: It was Spieth's second win of the season.

"Short game can definitely get a little better, and obviously, putting, which is a combination of taking my opportunities when I put myself in a good position for birdie, and then being able to get it up-and-down to keep the momentum of the rounds going, which hasn't really-I haven't been able to do that over the past couple of weeks". His only miss came at the 18th, which resulted in a bogey. He followed up a 75 in the first round with a 67 and finished at 2 over. He should watch films of Ben Hogan to get this right because Hogan was a master at that.

Berger was the only one to make a move on Spieth.
