Jordan Spieth & Trophy
Jordan won the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational trophy in spectacular style, finishing with three birdies, nine putts for the last nine holes, a back nine of 30, which totaled to -5 under par 65, and a winning total of -17 under par, and a three shot victory;
His first professional win in Texas means so much to him, and the attitude he adopted after the bogey at 13;
“This day is a moment that will go down, no matter what happens in the next 30 years, as one of the most important days I’ve ever had.”
“I had a little red-ass in me and it came out in the next few holes.”
“I wasn’t sure how long it would take to get over the hurdle, of having to come into every interview room, having to listen to the crowds, talking only about what happened a month ago.”
“I’m 22 and we’ve won two majors. But it’s very difficult to stay present, to stay positive, when that’s happening, when those are the only questions.”
“So in our third tournament coming back to close this one out the way we did is really, really special.”
“It’s always nice to see those kind of putts and even chips go in on the back nine on Sunday and that’s going to serve me well going forward.”
“What a great week.”
Coming second was Harris English, at -14 under par, he carded a final round -4 under par, and was in with a chance, and then suddenly the chance was gone.
Ryan Palmer, -2 under 68 today, and Webb Simpson, also -2 under 68 today, tied for third place, both with -13 under par tournament totals.
