Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth, just two months after winning his first major championship in historic fashion at the Masters, made it two-in-a-row with a momentous one-shot victory at the 115th U.S. Open Championship.

Spieth closed with a one-under-par 69 (5-under 275 total) to top two players, including fellow Pro V1x golf ball loyalist Louis Oosthuizen, who birdied six of his final seven holes for a record-tying, final-nine 29.

Oosthuizen finished with a 3-under par 67.

Adam Scott (Pro V1x, 915D5 (9.5°) driver, 915F (15°) fairway metal, AP2 714 2-iron, 680 (3-9) irons, Vokey Design SM5 pitching (48°) and sand (54°) wedges and TVD K grind lob (60°) wedge, Scotty Cameron Futura X protoype putter) posted the low final round of the day with a six-birdie, six-under par 64, and vaulted into a share of fourth place with two other players, including fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith (Pro V1x, 915D3 (10.5°) driver, 915F (15°) fairway metal, 915Hd (20.5°) hybrid, AP2 714 (4-PW) irons, Vokey Design SM5 gap (52°), sand (56°) and lob (60°) wedges, Scotty Cameron GoLo 5 putter) at three-under par 277.

Smith closed his final round with a birdie on No. 16 and an eagle on No. 18 to post a two-under par 68.

Four of the top six finishers relied upon Titleist golf balls for their success.

JUST THE STATS: Spieth tied for the lead in Birdies for the week with 18, and tied for fifth with fellow Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott in Greens in Regulation (76%), connecting on 55 of 72 for the week.

For many golfers, the game is often a family tradition. It's handed down from one generation to another and it can serve as an unshakeable family bond.

We recently met the Puckett family while we were out in the Seattle - Tacoma area and they spent the day with us sharing their story.

"It's our favorite thing to do together. But, it's almost become a place where we can just talk about life in general," said Colin.

For his father, Walt, it's the chance to enjoy some uninterrupted time together.

"When you get five hours of concentrated time with your son, it's just good. I so look forward to it."

And now that Colin has a son of his own, the entire Puckett family is looking forward to carrying on the tradition.

Happy Father's Day!

And if you haven't seen the finished version yet (or you just want to watch it again)... here you go!
