PGA Tour star Jordan Spieth was in danger of potentially missing the cut at The Players Championship this weekend. He was essentially bailed out by a fan in Round 2, and he rewarded the fan for the accidental assist in a super cool way.

Spieth came to the ninth hole, his last hole in the second round sitting at +2 for the event. He needed to make sure to at least make par on the hole.

He hit an errant tee shot that was destined for the water. However, the shot ended up hitting a fan over near the penalty area, miraculously sending the ball safely into the fairway.

This saved Spieth’s entire tournament, as he would somehow go on to make an eagle on the hole to finish his round at even par, allowing him to play the weekend.

Spieth clearly took notice of how influential this moment was for him, speaking on the situation after his round on Friday.

“Literally whatever he wants this weekend,” said Spieth. “Everything from here on out is because it hit him.”

With this in mind, Spieth gifted the fan and his friends in attendance tickets for the remainder of the weekend along with a signed flag.

Jordan Spieth capitalized on this massive break on Saturday, shooting a -6 round where he did not have any bogeys on his scorecard.

He has obviously incredibly lucky to even be playing this weekend, but he will need even more luck if he is going to catch star golfer Scottie Scheffler, who is leading the tournament at -14 after Saturday’s action on the course.
