Spieth recorded two eagles live at Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Spieth twice from the fairway closed the eagle when he competed for the championship of the PGA Tour event with a prize fund of 7.8 million USD that was taking place in California.

The penultimate round on February 13, Spieth entered the 16 par4 hole, played 249 yards to the left of the fairway. 160 yards from the chessboard, he uses his 8 iron to get on the green. The ball dug into the pits, about 2.4 meters away, but then leaned forward and rolled into the target’s mouth.

This treatment phase and the par point of both last holes helped Spieth maintain the top of the table as at the beginning of the round. Besides eagle yesterday, Spieth had three birdies, four bogeys on the par72 field. You’re at -13 after 54 holes. Following Spieth were 11 players at a distance of four strokes, of which group T2 with -11 score of five players.

The American Golfer, born in 1993, still leads the competition for the title because the top competitors could not break the score, of which Daniel Berger is the most regretful. Competitors have the ability to share the top of the table with Spieth. However, at the top of hole 18, par5, Berger fired into the streetcar. The ball has just left the field line line (OB). Berger carefully asked the referee to consider, but in the end, still OB and later closed the double bogey hole.

On the opening day of February 11, Spieth also recorded a 10, par4 eagle with a similar shape with a sand wedge that specializes in escaping from bunkers, 113 yards away in the low wind. But at the green, the ball is backwards thanks to the spin.

Thanks to this backward eagle, Spieth enters the T4 group after 18 holes. The next leg, he hit 67 strokes and reached the top of the board with -12 with the advantage of leading Berger one stroke.

Spieth owns three major in 11 PGA Tour championships with 26 weeks of number one in the world (table OWGR). He won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2017. In July of that same year, Spieth won The Open Championship – his third major career, and then struggled to regain his form over the past three years.
