Jordan Spieth won the Valero Texas Open on Sunday in San Antonio to secure his first win on the PGA Tour since 2017. Spieth had gone 83 events straight without a win until he found victory in his home state. 

This was Spieth's 12th PGA Tour victory and the 27-year-old acknowledged the dry spell and his lack of confidence after the win. 

"It's been a long road," he said. "There were a lot of times I wasn't sure If I'd be here with you (interview in winner circle), talking to you about this right now. I never really doubted myself to be able to kind of get back to where I wanted to go but when you lose confidence a lot of times it's hard to see the positives of going forward and (I) just kept my head down."

"I owe a lot of people thanks, I can't wait to tell them. It's a team, and it's a team effort and I've been blessed to work with the best in the world in everything they do. This is a monumental win for me, it's one that I certainly thought about for a long time."  

Spieth won $1,386,000 for his victory.
