VIDEO: The insane 4-hole stretch that won Jordan Spieth 2017 British Open

This was probably the most surreal hour or so in golf in several years.

Jordan Spieth went bogey-birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie on Nos. 13-17 at Royal Birkdale, going from completely out of whack and likely giving away the Open Championship on this Sunday to a two-shot lead over Matt Kuchar and in total control heading to the 72nd hole.

It all started with this beyond bizarre sequence at No. 13.

From there, he made a frankly unbelievable bogey to fall from the co-lead to one shot back (it could’ve been a lot worse and ended his tournament).

Then he went birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie to move to 12 under and a two-shot lead. If he wins here at Royal Birkdale, this is the stretch that did it. (Update: He did win!)

Here’s his recovery on 13, his tee shot leading to birdie at 14, his eagle and birdie putts at 15 and 16, and now a GIF of his birdie reaction at 17.

If you don’t enjoy this, we can’t help you…
