The Valero Texas Open was won a year ago by Jordan Spieth for his 12th PGA Tour victory. Now almost a year to the day, Spieth gets his 13th win at the RBC Heritage. Spieth came from behind on Sunday to post -13 in the clubhouse about an hour before the leaders. Several golfers had opportunities to tie or even win but only Patrick Cantlay was able sustain his effort and end up in a tie with Spieth.
Off to the 18th tee for the playoff hole. Both found the fairway. Both had their 2nd shots into the green knocked down by the strong wind into the frontal sand trap. Spieth’s ball was sitting up at the end of the bunker. Cantlay wasn’t as lucky as his ball was buried near by. Spieth’s sand shot ended up about 2 inches from the hole for a tap in par. Cantlay could only blast his sand shot and the ball ran away from the hole. His long par putt went running by the hole to give Spieth the win.
