Dallas native, Jordan Spieth, 22, came from two strokes behind on the back nine, closing with a birdie-birdie-birdie finish to win the Dean & DeLuca Invitational in spectacular fashion. It's his first pro victory in his home state. The win is redemption after his memorable collapse at the Masters earlier this year.

Besides winning the Colonial's traditional plaid jacket, Spieth earned 500 FexExCup points and pocketed $1,206,000. Amarillo native Ryan Palmer, a Colonial member, finished tied for third.
