21-Year-Old Dallas Native Jordan Spieth Just Won The U.S. Open, His Second Major Of 2015.

Heading into Sunday, the big story of the 2015 U.S. Open was Australia's Jason Day battling his way into contention despite a frightening bout with vertigo. Given the way the tournament's final minutes played out, though, it's safe to say the championship will be remembered as the one where Dustin Johnson gift-wrapped to Jordan Spieth the second major of his young career.

The 21-year-old Spieth deserves some credit here, having played consistently all weekend long and getting a birdie on his final hole to give himself the clubhouse lead. But Dustin Johnson had every chance to take it back from him: On his own final hole, Johnson, who'd jockeyed with Spieth atop the leaderboard all weekend long, reached the green in two shots, leaving himself an eagle putt for the win. Alas, he'd missed that shot — as well as the next one, which would've forced an 18-hole playoff with Spieth on Monday. Instead, Johnson's miscues left Spieth the out-and-out champ of the tournament hosted at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington. It also left the young Dallas native as the winner of the first two major championships of the 2015 golf season.

It had been an interesting week for Spieth. He kept near the top of the leaderboard all weekend long but remained an outspoken critic of the Chambers Bay course — the 18th hole in particular. But the golf gods, it seems, have a sense of humor: It was his successes on the final hole — and Johnsons' failures there — that ended up leaving Spieth the champ.

There's no longer any doubt: The Spieth hype is absolutely real. He'll continue his bid for an elusive Grand Slam bid at the 2016 British Open, which kicks off less than a month from now on July 14.

In the meantime, celebratory drinks at So & So's?!?!?!?!

No? Maybe the Reunion Tower showing love will suffice:
