PGA Tour Players Tweet After Spieth’s Epic Hole-out

Jordan Spieth made one of the all-time shots in PGA Tour history to win the Travelers Championship. It will be replayed on CBS golf promos for years to come.

It was exactly what the sport needed – the so-called “Golden Child,” playing in sudden death, in front of one of the loudest and rowdiest galleries in recent memory (aside from Phoenix), holes a walk off bunker shot for his record-tying 10th Tour win.

It was simply epic. And it absolutely lit up Twitter, including tweets from fellow PGA Tour pros.

The Prediction

Justin Thomas sort of started it with a prediction prior to Jordan’s iconic shot.

JT followed it up with a reference to #GoldenChild

The Floodgates

Once Spieth’s Titleist disappeared into the hole, and Jordan whipped his wedge while Michael Greller threw his rake, the tweets were fast and furious. Many kidded about Spieth’s superstar image.

The Funny

Hunter Mahan, who finally had a decent start, posted a GIF.

Former world No. 1 Luke Donald posted some tongue-in-cheek dry humor.

The Classy

The guy on the losing end, Daniel Berger, was all class.

The current world No. 1 was, well, pure DJ – short and succinct.

Danny Lee sent a congratulations to Jordan, as well as a thank you to the tournament.
