Jordan Spieth enjoyed his first trip to TPC River Highlands so much, he joked about buying a house in the area afterwards.
A magnificent hole-out from the greenside bunker allowed Spieth to beat Daniel Berger in a one-hole playoff to capture last year’s Travelers Championship.
It’s a shot that neither Spieth nor the sea of fans gathered around the amphitheater-like finishing green will soon forget.
“I don't even know if I've ever even heard something like that, including a game-winning shot in an NBA arena,” said Spieth. “That’s as loud as it kind of gets. I felt the ground shake there on the 18th hole.
“I've watched the shot, I don't know how many times, a thousand times, and just on replay, especially the next week or so, and then it kind of pops up here or there and brings some amazing memories. I get chills every time I see it.”
Spieth has been left shaking his head through some rounds this season on the PGA Tour, but perhaps a return to a happy place can springboard the 24-year-old’s season.
