With his foursome 2 Down with two holes remaining, Jordan Spieth had literally nothing to lose to try and save par on the 17th green. His partner Justin Thomas left him in Golf Jail with their tee ball on the Par 3, but he came through with the shot of the matches so far.
When you’re lying dormi and must win the hole just to extend the match... go for broke!
One of the most amazing shots you'll ever see from Jordan Spiethpic.twitter.com/3vKxrpfpNM— DraftKings (@DraftKings) September 24, 2021
And then Justin Thomas missed the putt anyway.
So the Spaniards Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia were victorious 3&1 after this hole to take the first point of the Ryder Cup.
The USA leads in the other three morning matches, but it was always going to be an uphill climb to defeat a team with the World No. 1 player in Rahm, and the all-time leader in Ryder Cup points in Garcia. Spieth and Thomas played well overall, and they’ll have another chance likely as a pair this afternoon.
