    Jordan Spieth had his magic back and then some today, shooting a 30 on the back nine to win at the venerable Colonial course in Fort Worth. The latest official corporate name for the event is the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial. Spieth made one long-range putt after another, mixed with great iron shots and an amazing chip-in on 17.

    This is a big win for Jordan. It's his first in his native Texas, and his 8th overall. He surpassed Tiger Woods, who won 7 PGA events before the age of 23; Jordan doesn't turn 23 until late July. It goes a long way toward putting his failure at The Masters in the rearview mirror. And Rabbi Lerner and friends have been a little too eager of late to anoint the "exotic" Jason Day as a player much better than Spieth and Rory McIlroy. Day has been on a tear, but it's still a "big three" and this win by Jordan puts it back in the proper perspective.

    Jordan Spieth wins his second Australian Open in 3 years! After he won the 2014 open, he went on a tear we hadn't seen by someone so young in like 75 years. Let's hope for another great season to come for Spieth!

    Jordan Spieth goes wire to wire to win The Travelers Championship! The 10th win of his career. Making him the second youngest player, 23 years and 10 months, to win 10 tournaments. Woods was 23 years 6 months. Nicklaus was 24 years old when he won his 10th.

    He couldn't hit a putt all day. So, the chip-in was necessary. He's proven to be a great front runner, like Woods. 6 of his 10 wins came with a 36 hole lead. The only 36 hole lead he blew was the 2016 Masters, finished T-2.

    Ten career wins isn't all that common these days on the Tour. Only around a dozen active players have reached that mark. To accomplish it at the age of 23 is tremendous.
