Jordan Spieth stood at the tee of the 71st hole of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational at Colonial with a one-shot lead over Harris English, but needed two relatively fortunate breaks to avoid dropping back.
Spieth, who has struggled off the tee in recent weeks, hit a shot into the crowd that bounced back out to within a few feet from the fairway.

After stopping to hand over an autographed glove, Spieth's approach to the green at the par-4 17th sailed over the flag and struck the grandstands. Spieth was able to drop his ball and had a chip shot from a very tough position - and he drained it.
The shot dropped Spieth to 16-under par, and the final group standing in the fairway watching Spieth on the green knew the tournament was over. The win is Spieth's first of the season, and the first of his career in the state of Texas.
Spieth was even through nine holes Sunday and trailed English, but birdied his first three (and last three) holes on the back nine to post a final-round 65. Spieth had three putts to win on the 18th, but capped the tournament with a 34-foot birdie putt.
