It was a homecoming in more ways than one as three-time major champion Jordan Spieth returned to the winner’s circle for the first time since 2017, taking home the Valero Texas Open title in the same state where it all started for the Ryder Cup star.

Spieth has been knocking on the championship door for a while now, with three top-four finishes since February, but was finally able to break through in San Antonio, besting the field by two strokes and finishing at 18-under par on the week.

For Spieth, the victory inches him closer to contention for this year’s U.S. Ryder Cup team, as the Texas native moves from 22nd to 13th in this week’s standings. Charley Hoffman was this week’s biggest mover, jumping from 38 to 24 on the strength of his second-place showing.
