Jordan Spieth shot a two-under 69 in the final round, made clutch putts to force a playoff and eventually won his second PGA Tour title while eclipsing $10M in career earnings.
Spieth drained a 30-foot putt on the third extra hole to beat Patrick Reed and Sean O’Hair. The tournament nearly ended on the second playoff hole as O’Hair lipped a 12-foot birdie putt. O’Hair hasn’t won since the 2011 Canadian Open but put himself in position on Sunday with a bogey-free back-nine en route to a four-under 67.
“I gave myself a chance,” O’Hair said. “That’s really all I can do. I played solid all day, played solid all week, and then the playoff was a ton of fun. Two young guys made me feel really old.”
Spieth moved up to No. 6 in the world rankings with the win and the 21-year old is firmly entrenched among the favorites at The Masters next month.
BOOOOOM!!!!!! Jordan Spieth WINS!
