He didn't backdoor his way into the top spot with some T-22 finish. Didn't sweat out some chew-your-fingernails stretch run. No, the guy who has created a habit of making golf look easy made this look downright effortless.

Yahoo News - 13 days
(Reuters) - Jordan Spieth focused on "boring golf" and shrugged off an unexpected birdie drought in the final round as he clinched his ninth PGA Tour victory, by four shots, at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California on Sunday.
