Jordan Spieth chips in from bunker to capture Travelers in playoff

Jordan Spieth chips in from bunker to capture Travelers in playoff”

Notes: The field, unusually strong for the Travelers Championship, includes Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Justin Thomas.

To be honest, this win came harder than some may have thought, Holding a three-shot lead with eight to play, Spieth lost it all with a combination of mistakes and Berger's hot play. He closed with an even-par 70 to match Berger -who birdied three of the final six holes for a 67 - at 12-under 268.

Three shots behind Spieth in third place is Daniel Berger at 9 under after a 66. "He's a guy everybody very much respects and really likes being around, and that's fun". "I played great today".

Jordan Spieth hits his second shot on the ninth hole during the third round of the Travelers Championship golf tournament at TPC River Highlands on Saturday, June 24, 2017, in Cromwell, Conn.

Meanwhile, the rest of the field, minus Weekley, who shot a 2-over 72 to take himself out of contention, was going low with the hope of catching Spieth and that's exactly what happened for Daniel Berger. His longest putt was 15 feet on No. 11. Berger's first shot hit left off the fairway and landed 164 yards away.

"I jumped up and saw it coming right down on the pin", Spieth said of the bunker shot. Berger's attempt to answer from off the green was close but missed. Spieth had a one-shot league on Boo Weekley entering the final day of the tournament.

The club toss was also one of Spieth's best reactions in a career full of them, and he then followed it up with a chest bump with caddie Michael Greller.

Spieth and Berger had both previously pared the 18th hole with great shots out of the greenside bunker. Something like that to win a tournament.

As for what putter he will have in the bag at his next start, the Irish Open, stay tuned.

Weekley is looking for his fourth tour title and first since 2013. Defending champion Lydia Ko was 5 under after a 67.

The 26-year-old's world ranking should get a boost beyond its current 99th, while his Tour points ranking is projected to climb from 85th to 51st.

Nick Faldo was even par after a 73.

Third-ranked So Yeon Ryu shot a course-record 10-under 61 in the NW Arkansas Championship in Rogers, take a five-stroke lead into the final round, putting her in great position to become the first repeat victor this year.

It was Romero's second European Tour title, ten years after he won the Players Championship of Europe. He shot a 68 to finish at 5 under.

On the par-4 10th, Spieth got his groove back. Stricker is making his first start in his hometown event after turning 50 in February. In 1998, Olin Browne chipped in for birdie to win a sudden-death playoff.
