Final Thoughts on the 2015 U.S. Open : Jordan Spieth just won his 2nd major faster than Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus.

jordan-spieth-under-armour-304xx405-270-176-0

When I said Jordan Spieth was going to win a U.S. Open , I didn’t know he’d win this week. I did him have right behind Rory Mcilory as my pre-tournament favorite. Even after making a double bogey on the 17th hole, Speith came back with a brilliantly played 18th that he ended up birdieing. What’s …
