Jordan Spieth has always been known for his entertaining play on the golf course. Whether it is holing bunker shots or hitting shots next to a cliff, there is never a dull moment. Spieth added to that legend by making a left-handed par save on Sunday.

Jordan Spieth made a left-handed par save because of course he did

The clip of Spieth's par save on the 16th hole in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational can be found below courtesy of the PGA Tour:

The par-5 16th is usually a birdie or eagle chance for players, but not when you get out of position off the tee. Spieth hooked his tee shot against the boundary fence. He later admitted that he should have just taken an unplayable, but that he was so far out of the tournament that he decided to try to chop it out left-handed.

He left it in the rough and was still forced to lay up with his third shot. He hit a solid wedge shot onto the green with his fourth and sank the putt for a par 5. Just another ho-hum par for Spieth.

He gave the left-handed shot a pretty decent effort too considering he was playing out of thick rough. Spieth may have an advantage because he throws left-handed and is left-hand dominant outside of golf so he may be more comfortable swinging left-handed than most right-handed golfers.

He has also shown throughout his career that he has a knack for getting the ball in the hole in the most entertaining way possible. That is why he is one of the most beloved players in golf because watching him play golf can be an emotional roller coaster experience where one feels like they are on the ride with him.

While it was a disappointing week for Spieth overall, he still provided another Spieth-like highlight to an already exhaustive list. He will have a chance to bounce back this week at the Players Championship.
