Spieth Back On Track
Jordan Spieth is back to his winning ways. With a late charge Sunday afternoon, Spieth came back to win the Dean & Deluca Invitational.
After an even front nine, Spieth needed to make a move to get back atop the leaderboard. Tied for the lead with three holes to play, Spieth birdied 16, 17, and 18 to capture the long awaited win that he needed to get over his Masters mishap.
"In our third tournament back, to come back and close this one out the way we did is really, really special," Spieth said. "This day is a moment that'll go down, no matter what happens in the next 30 years of my career, this will be one of the most important days that I've ever had."
Spieth broke a tie for second with Tiger Woods for victories before a player's 23rd birthday with eight. Only Horton Smith (14) has more.
"The significance of it happening now ... because I wasn't sure how long it would take to get over the hurdle of having to come in to every single interview room, having to listen to crowds only talk about what happened a month ago," he said. "And it's very difficult, and I'm 22. It's not like I hadn't won, and we've won two majors."
Spieth looks to be back on track as the U.S. Open looms in June.
