Spieth expects 'crap' from Berger over 'lucky' win

But those would be his final two birdies until a 16-footer on the 15th hole. Spieth's drive clipped a tree to the left and landed in the fairway, but about 150 yards short of his normal drive and 230 yards from the hole. He closed with an even-par 70 to match Berger at 12-under 268.

Minutes after saying this win was "One for the ages", receiving the trophy Sunday and donning the Travelers Championship blazer, Spieth praised the tournament and the many vocal fans.

"I was in there in regulation, knew it was the place to be".

After a wedge shot into the green Berger was left with a long birdie putt which would have forced another playoff hole, but unfortunately for Daniel, it just wasn't in the cards.

"I couldn't have done any worse than what I've done in the first three days, so I just wanted to mix it up and go back to something that looked a little more familiar", said McIlroy, who will now enjoy a week off before heading to Portstewart to host the Irish Open.

Spieth, 23, who led the TPC River Highlands tournament all week, joins elite company with Tiger Woods as the only golfer since 1983 to win 10 PGA Tour events before their 24th birthday.

Spieth, who also holed out from a bunker to get into a playoff en route to winning his breakthrough title four years ago, tried to cool comparisons with other players.

By Monday morning, Frank and two editors who worked on the piece , Lex Haris and Eric Lichtblau, had submitted their resignations. He lumped ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times and The Washington Post together in the same "fake news" category.

Playing a group apart, both men found the greenside bunker on the final hole and both were able to get up-and-down to save par.

When Berger missed his birdie putt from the left front portion of the green, Spieth took off his hat, shook Greller's hand and then the hand of Berger, whose nickname is Boge.

"I am thrilled that I hit the ball very, very well today", said Couples, coming off a seven-week break. I need this to be over now. Something like that to win a tournament.

Spieth and Berger finished 72 holes at 12-under. A birdie on the par-4 15th put him back in the lead on his own but a late surge from Daniel Berger took the championship to a play-off.

"It's just about when are those putts going to start going in, and they did for the first few rounds, and didn't quite today and that happens, but it's tough", Spieth said. "You've got to keep resetting goals".

And then there was Sunday at the Travel's Championship. Greater Hartford Open with a six-stroke win over Ray Floyd and Hubert Green. Gene Littler did it in 1959 and Tim Morris in 1982.

Spieth come away from Cromwell with a memorable victory.
