The First Tee at the Memorial Tournament (Muirfield Village)

Well that didn't take long. Despite enduring everything from a “slump" to a “career-defining choke", Jordan Spieth silenced his critics with a classic Spieth-like finish by birdieing the final three holes and taking home the Dean & DeLuca championship, which also happened to be the first win in his native Texas. Spieth managed to get off the tee relatively well, and in reality that was all he needed. He putted lights out, including several par saves over the weekend that kept him in the hunt. I have been recommending Spieth every week since the Masters with this type of performance in mind, because I had all the faith in the world that his so called “drought" wouldn't last long. His game travels well because putting travels as well as any club in the bag. The win was Spieth's second of the year, and moved him back inside the top 5 of the Fed Ex Cup Rankings. One Texan that the tournament did not end up as well for was Ryan Palmer. Palmer is a member of Colonial CC and had played great golf throughout the week. Ultimately he could not keep pace with Spieth, but he did continue his impressive season and has put himself in very good position in the Fed Ex Cup race.
