SPI­ETH STEALS THE SHOW

Four play­ers aged un­der 20 have won on the PGA Tour but only one of them since 1968 – Jor­dan Spi­eth (right) who won the 2013 John Deere Clas­sic at TPC Deere Run, aged 19 years, 11 months and 17 days. Spi­eth had to hole a bunker shot on the 72nd hole to earn a spot in a play-off along­side Zach John­son and Canada’s David Hearn, a play-off he went on to win on the fifth ex­tra hole.

THE ART OF VIC­TORY

The oldest win­ner on the PGA Tour post-1968 was Art Wall, win­ner of the 1975 Westch­ester Clas­sic at 51 years, seven months and 10 days. The oldest win­ner in re­cent years has been Davis Love who, at 51 years and four months, cap­tured his 21st Tour win at the 2015 Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship.
