It was considered a bold move, but Jordan Spieth went ahead and competed in the John Deere Classic this past weekend. And he proved that it was a great idea, as he took home the title in a two-hole playoff with Tom Gillis. Down a few strokes on the back nine, Spieth came roaring back, almost as if it was to be expected.

The win marks his second there and fourth of the year, as he will head to the British Open this week with all the momentum. Without defending champion Rory McIlroy playing, Spieth will come into the event as the favorite. Not only that, but there is a chance for him to claim the No. 1 ranking in the world.
