After a disaster on the 13th, Jordan Spieth rebounded incredibly to claim The Claret Jug on Sunday evening…
Heading into the final round of The Open at the Royal Birkdale, Jordan Spieth had a three shot lead and was heavy odds on to raise the Claret Jug. However, the young American had dropped four shots after 13 holes and many felt it was all coming apart for the 24-year-old.
His 13th, in particular, was an absolute nightmare with commentators claiming that his tee off was one of the worst they’d ever seen in a major tournament.
This might be a bigger meltdown for @JordanSpieth then the time he tin cupped it at the masters

Meltdown from #JordanSpieth but wouldn't surprise me if he pulls off wonder shot.

Spieth managed to finish the hole with a bogey and then, rather incredibly, he rebounded with three birdies and an eagle in his next four holes.
Check out the best reaction to Spieth’s phenomenal up and down round below;

What do Jordan Spieth and Sir Mix-a-lot have in common? They like big putts and they cannot lie. #TheOpen

Being the greatest of your generation isn't about power or putting or iron play – it's all upstairs. That's Jordan Spieth. Mentally superior
