Eleven months after the John Deere Classic win, Jordan Speith recreates incredible miracle shot on the 18th hole again at a media day presentation. Like it wasn’t enough that he made that shot out of the bunker once under pressure to force a tie on the 18th hole, but relaxed and just attempting to recreate that magic does it on the 1st try!
Usually these media day presentations will include plenty of smoozing of the sponsors with autographs, enertaining questions for the player, and a few CEO’s getting pictures with Speith. But when Speith wanted to go out to the 18th hole to try to recreate the shot heard round the world from that bunker, no one would have imagined that lightning would strike twice in the same place.
Here is the refresher of that famous shot made last July in the final round of the 2013 John Deere Classic, Jordan Spieth one-hops a 44-foot bunker shot for birdie on the par-4 18th hole to force a playoff with David Hearn and Zach Johnson that Spieth would go on to win.
Jordan Speith Recreates Incredible Miracle Shot on the 18th Hole Again!
There is a talent here that I believe will be Tiger like with wins, but different. Being just a teenager at age 19 and winning a PGA tournament is incredible in itself, which is why all the talk of this young man is primarily focused on being the next “Tiger.” Everyone is looking for another shooting star right now with Woods out of commission temporarily. But Tiger Woods is forceful and intense. Speith is quiet and agreeable. Jordan denies being the next superstar and that shows more for his age than Patrick Reed can say for himself. I’m glad there is a Jordan Speith coming into the picture whether he fills the shoes or not, but I think he will.
