From the drama at hole No. 13 until his tap-in for the win, Jordan Spieth pieced together one of the most memorable finishes at a major championship in history Sunday at The Open Championship.

On the verge of blowing his chances altogether following a horrific drive at 13, Spieth took nearly half an hour to line up his next shot and salvage bogey. From there, he finished birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie-par to seal the win.

The climax came at hole No. 15, where he stared down a 48-foot putt for eagle and nailed it dead center. Here’s how he described his celebration after the putt, which has been making the rounds on social media and even inspired a T-shirt.

From Golf.com:

“It was kind of like an old-school movie, when the caddies used to get it out of the hole when guys holed a chip. When you’re here, the TVs are always playing old Open Championships, and especially at that venue. I don’t know, I saw it, and for whatever reason, I didn’t really know what I was doing at that point. I looked over at Michael and he was in shock, too, and I just said, ‘Pick that ball up out of the hole.’ And he didn’t really know what I was saying at first.”

What Spieth actually said was, “Go get that,” which is a line casual golfers — especially ones in burnt orange — will surely be using for years to come. They can also wear it for $25, thanks to SwingJuice.com.
