Congratulations to Texas Longhorn and Men’s Golf alum Jordan Spieth! Jordan Spieth, 19, became the youngest player to win a PGA Tour event in 82 years Sunday. He also collected a first-prize check of $828,000.
Jordan Spieth did it by surviving a grueling five-hole, sudden-death playoff with defending champion Zach Johnson and David Hearn at the John Deere Classic. Spieth, a Dallas native who doesn’t turn 20 for another two weeks, hit a short par putt to earn a spot in the field at Muirfield. He is the first teenager to win since Ralph Guldahl took the Santa Monica Open in 1931.
Spieth, who got into the playoff when he holed a bunker shot on the final hole of regulation that he called “the luckiest shot I’ve ever hit in my life,” become the youngest winner since 19-year-old Ralph Guldahl won the Santa Monica Open in 1931.
“I don’t know what I did to deserve all those breaks. I was just so lucky. Extremely fortunate,” Spieth said. He came in with five top-10 finishes this season.
