Jordan Spieth was four-over entering the par-4 eighth hole on Friday. Since that point he has gone seven-under with no bogies. On the par-5 13th during the third round he hit one of the best shots of the tournament from the pine straw over a tributary to Rae’s Creek.
Just before the shot, Spieth asked his caddie Michael Greller, “What would Arnie do?”

Spieth almost made his putt for eagle, but instead walked away with a birdie to move to four-under. He is currently two back of leader Charley Hoffman.
The shot brought back memories of Phil Mickelson’s shot from the same area during the 2010 Masters.
