Jordan Spieth wins in home state for first time

Jordan Spieth wins in home state for first time

FORT WORTH, Texas – Jordan Spieth has a win at home in the Lone Star State.

Spieth won at Colonial after birdieing the last three holes Sunday for a 5-under 65, including a chip-in from behind the 17th green following a fortunate bounce off a marshal. He punctuated his first PGA Tour victory in Texas with a closing 34-foot putt when needing only a bogey to win.

It was the eighth career win for Spieth, the world's No. 2-ranked player, and came in only his third tournament since blowing a five-stroke lead on the back nine last month when trying to win the Masters for the second year in a row. He will try to defend his U.S. Open title in three weeks at Oakmont.
