Today’s question: “The Shot Heard Round the World” refers to what NBA player’s game-winning field goal?
Yesterday’s question and answer: The 2015 U.S. Open was won by Jordan Spieth in spite of his uncharacteristic finish to the tournament. How did Spieth finish his last three holes en route to victory? Answer: Birdie, Dougle Bogey, Birdie. With just two holes remaining, Spieth had a three-stroke lead. Similar to Dustin Johnson on the 18th hole, Spieth three-putted the 17th hole while Johnson birdied it to even their scores. Spieth’s birdie on the 18th hole gave him his second major of the year after he won the Masters two months earlier. Had Johnson and Spieth been tied after 72 holes ,they would have played an 18-hole playoff on Monday.
