Everybody, including myself, had Jordan Spieth as a shoo in victor today at the Northern Trust Open.

He had a 5 shot lead heading into hole #6 today.
Suddenly the Dustin Johnson we all know so well, showed up and somehow ended up tied with Jordan at -13 under par at the end of regulation play.

The playoff headed back to the 18th hole. Long, mean hole.

Jordan hit first and smacked a beauty right down the middle. My goodness Dustin Johnson said he noticed “the wind changed a bit”.

That gave him a chance to hit directly over the lake. Most people thought it was going to go in the water.

Not only did he clear the lake with no problem, he ended up with the longest drive of the week on #18. He smoked the drive 341 yards and only had a 60 degree wedge but it was only 97 yards to the pin.

Poor Jordan still had 175 yards to the pin.

We talked earlier this week about Dustin hitting the ball 40 farther than his competitors well this was 75+ yards farther.

This guy is really peaking at the right time. He had no bogeys today and had no bogeys on the back nine holes all week.

The guys were put on the clock when they got to the back nine and hurried it up a bit. Once they were taken off the clock you could see Jordan slow it back down again.

Jordan was funny today. He and Michael were actually factoring in ADRENALIN in their yardage measurement.

One shot he said let’s figure 8 yards for adrenaline. I have never heard a player and his caddy ever say that out loud.

The lowest scores today were posted by Jhonny Vegas, Webb Simpson, & Charlie Hoffman. They all posted -5 under par 65’s.

Next week the top 100 FedEx Cup points leaders head to Boston to play the Dell Technologies Championship.

The second round of the FedEx Cup playoffs. They then have an off week………….no clue why??

Ending with the BMW Championship and lastly the Tour Championship. It’s going to be a great finish.
