Jordan Spieth won The Open after his caddie saved him from making a major mistake

Jordan Spieth went on an epic run on the final five holes to win The Open Championship, but it may have never happened if not for his caddie saving the day on the wild 13th hole. At No. 13, Spieth hit his tee shot about 100 yards to the right of the fairway. While Spieth had a much cleaner lie in the practice area, his shot to the green was completely blind and his own calculation of how far he was from the green turned out to be way off.

Jordan Spieth works wizardry to escape Royal Birkdale with Claret Jug

SOUTHPORT, England –  Jordan Spieth posted a picture from a recent sojourn to Cabo in which he stood alongside the best basketball player of all time (Michael Jordan), the best Olympian of all time (swimmer Michael Phelps) and a Super Bowl-winning quarterback (Seattle’s Russell Wilson).  Sunday at Royal Birkdale in the 146th British Open, when Spieth’s mind was spinning, he was struggling with a loose swing and everything was running faster than the trains that churn past the course, his schoolteacher-turned-caddie, Michael Greller, stopped Spieth off the seventh tee to remind him of something. “You remember that group you were with last week?” Greller asked his young player. “You belong in that

Spieth silences his doubters – including himself

It wasn’t Jean van de Velde standing in the burn at Carnoustie, but it was no less outrageous – Jordan Spieth perched atop a dune glaring into a cold rain. Although Spieth was trying as best he could to see a line to the 13th green, and minimize the damage of a drive that ended up closer to the practice tee than it did the fairway, he may as well have been watching the claret jug slipping away into the gloom. Van de Velde went on to lose that 2006 Open in spectacular fashion, whereas Spieth’s finish was even more remarkable and completed a wire-to-wire victory that was far more eventful than anyone could have imagined just 24 hours earlier. “Give me a round number,” Spieth shouted to his caddie Michael Greller from atop the hill adjacent to the 13th fairway.
