Jordan Spieth bounces back with stunning Colonial win


Powered by National Club Golfer


Jordan Spieth, the two-time Major champion and supposed out-of-touch World No 2, polished off his second win of 2016 by three shots at Colonial.

A five under back nine did the job with Harris English in second and Webb Simpson and member Ryan Palmer in third.

English had reeled him in over the front nine but a long par save by Spieth got him going and he birdied three on the trot from the 10th.

Spieth holed from distance at 16 to nudge clear and then chipped in from behind the next green.

He signed off in style by knocking in a 35-footer at the 72nd hole when three putts would have done. And he explained afterwards that some goading by the fans was the key to sparking that back-nine charge.

What Spieth said: “I heard it a few times in the crowd, you know, ‘Go Palmer, he’s going to do the Masters’ or whatever like that. I mean, that’s not fun to hear.

“Trying to throw all that out and just focus on what me and (caddie) Michael (Greller) are talking about on the next shot is the toughest thing, and we got through that at the end of the round.

“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. It’s very difficult to stay present, stay positive when that’s happening, when those are the only questions. In our third tournament back, to come back and close this one out the way we did is really, really special.”
