Former Longhorn Jordan Spieth won a three person playoff to win the PGA Tour John Deere Classic Sunday evening. With the win, at 19-years old, Spieth is the youngest player in 80 years to win on the PGA Tour. The last under-20 to win on the PGA Tour was Ralph Guldahl in 1931 who won the Santa Monica Open.

Spieth defeated David Hearn and Zach Johnson with a two-foot putt and finished on-par on the fifth hole of the playoff round. He earned a spot in the Open Championship which will take place next week.
