Spieth returns THAT 3-iron to BirkdaleOctober 18, 2017 The Scoop
The Champion Golfer of the Year has sent Royal Birkdale a remarkable gift.
Jordan Spieth hit one of the most talked about golf shots in 2017. (And it wasn’t even on an actual golf course…)
You don’t need me to remind you that during the final round of the Open at Royal Birkdale earlier this year the 23-year-old ran into some trouble on the 13th which, after a 20 minute delay, resulted in a drop in a rather peculiar spot.
After figuring out the nearest point of relief was in fact the Birkdale driving range Spieth and his caddie, Michael Greller, were left scratching their heads on a yardage.
Now, after opting to hit a 3-iron and making one of the most unlikely bogeys in Open history, the three-time major champion has sent a replica of the famous club back to where it belongs.

This shot sparked one of the most amazing major finishes in recent memory as Spieth went on to claim the Claret Jug in style.
After almost holing his tee shot at the par-3 14th he then holed an incredible 50-foot birdie putt at the 15th which sparked remarkable scenes as he held Matt Kuchar at bay.
What an awesome gesture, Jordan!
