21-year-old Jordan Spieth further entrenched himself in golf lore over the weekend by becoming the youngest player to win the U.S. Open since 1923. He conquered Chambers Bay’s rolling fairways, waist-high rough and much debated greens. He survived a double bogey late in Sunday’s final round to outlast runner-up Dustin Johnson and hoist the U.S. Open Trophy.
Spieth is also only the sixth player to win both The Masters and the U.S Open in the same year joining the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods in doing so.
After watching the tournament, hearing a lot of the debate about the venue and bearing witness to another step in Jordan Spieth’s rise to the game’s upper echelon; we talked with Barry Bonifield, Head PGA Professional at Louisville’s Crescent Hill Golf Club to get his thoughts on the weekend’s action.
