A 2015 U.S. Open Review: Spieth For The Win (Again)

Heartbreak for DJ.

A 2015 U.S. Open Review: Spieth For The Win (Again)

The 115th United States Open Championship from Chambers Bay, nestled along Puget Sound outside of Seattle, Washington has concluded with Jordan Spieth becoming only the sixth man ever to win both the Masters and U.S. Open in the same year. He joins Craig Wood and names you might recognize: Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. He also become the youngest U.S. Open winner in history at only 21 years old.

Spieth came into the final round on Sunday tied for the lead with Jason Day. Dustin Johnson and Branden Grace fired a one under 69 and watched as Dustin Johnson burned the edge of the cup for birdie on the 18th, cementing his second Major championship.

This tournament will go down as one of the most dramatic Majors in recent memory. DJ stepped up to the 72nd hole, the par five 18th one behind Spieth, bombed a drive straight down the middle of the fairway and followed it up with a beautiful five iron to within 12 feet of the cup. As he sat over his Championship winning eagle attempt, you could feel the tension in the air. He strikes the ball and pulls it, missing the cup by no less than six inches. He is left with one of the most fear inducing putts in the sport. Four feet, uphill, with the world watching, to force an 18-hole playoff with Spieth on Monday. He burns the edge of the cup. It really was an absolutely heart-breaking ending to the weekend in which DJ played better than the anyone.

This win for Spieth is certainly legendary and cements his legacy as the game’s premiere talent today. All eyes will now shift to the most legendary course in the world, St. Andrews Links, The Home of Golf, the site of the 144th Open Championship and the third Major of the 2015 season, where Spieth will look to join only Bobby Jones and Tiger Woods as winners of three consecutive Majors in the same calendar year.

Y’all want to know what? I’m certainly not going to bet against this kid. I want to see a Grand Slam. Go get ‘em, Jordan.

War Eagle, Y’all.
