The name Ralph Guldahl may not ring a bell to some, but the man did hold a special place in golf's history. When he won the Santa Monica Open in 1931, Guldahl was the only teenage PGA Tour winner for 82 years. Today, 19-year-old Jordan Spieth won the John Deere Classic.
It wasn't easy either. Spieth had to fend off defending champion Zach Johnson and David Hearn in an intense five-hole, sudden-death playoff. Spieth clinched the win with a short putt, and earned himself a full PGA membership and a spot in the British Open. He was two weeks away from turning 20.
Hopefully, this is the start of bigger things for the Texan. He also holds the distinction of being the only golfer other than Tiger Woods to win multiple US Junior Amateur Championships. He also somehow finds a way to win when he's not on the course:
So shoutouts to him.
