Jordan Spieth was back in contention again on Sunday at the Memorial, another one of the PGA Tour's more prestigious events. The 20-year-old couldn't convert again in the final round, but one day later, he was in the Quad Cities region pulling off some magic at the John Deere Classic media day.
It was at that event last July that Spieth became the first teenager to win on the PGA Tour in more than 80 years. And he did it in the most dramatic way, holing out from a bunker on the 18th green. It was a closing birdie that would get him in a playoff he would quickly win over Zach Johnson and David Hearn.
These media days usually consist of a couple meet-and-greet sessions, a session with the local press, buttering up the sponsors and local dignitaries, and signing some autographs.
