Jordan Spieth has taken home the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Not only did he take home the winner, but he blew away the competition. Spieth shot a final -19. The closest competitor was Kelly Kraft (yeah..i know, WHO??) at -15.
Spieth started and finished alright. However, it was his middle two rounds that put him in the winning slot. Spieth went -3 (68), -7 (65), -7 (65), and -2 (70). Round 1 was a par-71.
It is great to see Spieth back in that dominating position. His last win was back in May of 2016.
I was able to notice how amazing Spieth's tempo was this weekend. His putter was back to the Spieth hot stick we all love to see. What is interesting is that almost all other golfers on tour have a putting tempo of 2:1 when it comes to take back and stiking through the ball. Spieth's is 1:1. It is amazing. Any golfer knows that coming through the ball at the same speed as your backswing would be funky feeling. Well, i think it may work.
Spieth was really highlight-less. He had a birdie on 2 and on 17. The only highlight we can look back at was the long putt made on 17. However, Spieth claims that was the plan today.
Spieth says his caddie, Michael Greller, told him to "Keep playing boring golf." Well, it worked obviously. Even though Spieth's response was "I don't like playing boring golf."
Anyways, smooth-swingin' Spiethy is showing he is here to play in 2017 and i could not be more excited.
This win jumps him from 16 to 3 in the FedE Cup standings.
Fun fact...This marks the 7th consecutive event on tour won by a player under 25 years old.
