Jordan Spieth, at one time, looked like he was going to become the most dominant golfer since Tiger Woods. Having burst onto the scene with domineering major victories, he suddenly dropped off the map. Coming into 2021, he had gone nearly four years without a win.
That all changed on Sunday, though, as he won the Valero Texas Open and continued what had been a remarkable bounce back of late. Spieth’s win was his first for over 1,300 days and was his 12th PGA Tour win. It was the first victory he’d earned since winning the British Open. It come courtesy of a final round -6 66 that saw him finish -18, two strokes clear of Charley Hoffman. It also catapults him into next week’s Masters with a ton of momentum.
