Wow, that was a thriller! — I’m glad I dragged my butt up to Hartford last night and made it to the Travelers Championship, my favorite regular event on the PGA Tour schedule, in time before Jordan Spieth made the turn in the final round.

Hey, you know what they say, the Travelers doesn’t start until the back nine on Sunday! It’s been almost three hours since Spieth holed-out from the bunker on 18 for birdie in the first playoff hole against Daniel Berger, and I *still* have goosebumps.

Nerves, passion and strong emotions are already running high amongst the 30 players in the field at East Lake — and no, unfortunately, these feelings aren’t necessarily inspired by the absolutely thrilling Tour Championship after the first round, and the kinda tacky $10-million FedExCup prize to the winner of the year-long contest. It’s all about next week’s Ryder Cup at Hazeltine in Minnesota, just outside Minneapolis. And it’s already getting all Mean Girls!

Almost immediately following the conclusion of the Tour Championship, the fourth and final leg of the FedExCup, U.S. Captain Davis Love III will announce the fourth of his captain’s pick to round out the U.S. Ryder Cup team. The other week, Love, who was also the skipper in 2012 during the biennial matches, which has been dubbed “the Miracle at Medinah” selected three of his wildcard picks, who didn’t make the team on points –Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes and Matt Kuchar.

With all sorts of crazy arguments made recently about DL3’s fourth pick, like that he should use it on vice-captain Tiger Woods (which isn’t one that I feel like I’d find compelling at all, but try me), the practice sessions at Hazeltine this past Sunday and Monday may shed light on DL3 narrowing it to three possibilities: Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger.

After the year he’s had, Jordan Spieth is going to need not only a bigger trophy case, but a larger room to fit all the hardware he’s won this past season. Spieth was voted by his peers as the PGA Tour Player of the Year on Friday, which was no surprise. The only player who joined the conversation for a brief period was Jason Day, but Spieth closed the door on that after he took care of business with a four-shot victory at the Tour Championship to win the FedEx Cup.

Spieth’s year was inspiring, to say the least. I’m not going to compare him to Tiger Woods because that’s simply not fair, but Spieth’s accomplishments were perhaps the closest thing we’ve seen to Woods in his prime.

Perhaps the elusive albatross isn’t so elusive — at least it hasn’t been the past two days at Bay Hill. Daniel Berger made the first one in the tournament history in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the par-5 6th. On Sunday, Zach Johnson followed suit and holed out from the fairway with a five-iron from 206 yards on the par-5 16th.

Daniel Berger hit one for the history books on Saturday at Bay Hill. The 21-year-old rookie holed out from 237 yards with a 4-iron on the par-5 6th to post a rare albatross (or as we Americans mistakenly refer to as a “double eagle”).

It was the first ever at the Arnold Palmer Invitational since the inception of the event in 1979.

It’s been a long, arduous road back to the winner’s circle for Padraig Harrington, whose last victory on the PGA Tour came at the 2008 PGA Championship. Similar to the past seven or so years, Harrington’s journey was filled with ups and downs before he closed out Daniel Berger on the second playoff hole to capture the Honda Classic on Monday.

Three of the eleven players who have finished their final round at the U.S. Open have turned in a red number. Louis Oosthuizen fired a 67 and his playing partner, Mathew Fitzpatrick, fired a 69. Daniel Berger birdied the 18th hole in the group behind to shoot a four-under 66, the lowest round of the weekend.
