WATCH: Jordan Spieth hits shot of the year at Travelers Championship

It was a terrific bunker shot by Jordan Spieth. But, the reason why it was the shot of the year, was the fact that it was done in a playoff, to win.

When it seemed like it was going to be a duel between Spieth and Daniel Berger, the playoff almost abruptly after the clutch hole-out by Spieth. Berger had a putt to tie, but just missed it, making Spieth the youngest player since Tiger Woods to get his first 10 wins on the PGA Tour.

This, and of course he has the two majors at the Masters and U.S. Open. mind you, when many fans, myself included, say Jordan’s shot was the best of the year, we’re excluding the majors, and are only talking about on the PGA Tour.

Because as we know, many will be quick to point out better shots at the majors. Certainly a couple of shots come to mind, is Justin Thomas’ incredible approach shot with a 3-wood at Erin Hills during the U.S. Open.

Another would be Sergio Garcia’s amazing putt on 15 at the Masters. Brooks Koepka’s string of long range putts at the U.S. Open also could make the list.

However, on the Tour schedule, this was clearly the best. Not only that, under the circumstances, it could rival that of the shots at the majors.

In a playoff,you’re in the bunker, in jepordy of possibly losing the title after having the lead all week, and you drill it. At one the PGA Tour’s most popular tournaments as well, mind you.

Well played Jordan. Also a tip of the cap to Dan Berger, he played great, and has had a very nice season.

Now go to beach and work on your bunker shots. Sand castle builders, you have been warned.
