Spieth is over loss to DJ, even if others aren't

Dustin Johnson stole the show, and the trophy, last week at The Northern Trust, with a crazy drive on the first playoff hole to top Jordan Spieth.

While Johnson's 342-yard drive was only 26 yards farther than Spieth's, the line he took over the lake gave him a distinct advantage as it left him just 94 yards from the hole, compared to Spieth's 182 yards.

The comparison is so eye-popping, it had some people talking about it three days later. The PGA Tour posted a photo of the hole info on Instagram Wednesday with the caption, "Still can't get over that line."

Well, one person who has moved on would be Mr. Spieth himself.

The new world No. 2 quickly responded to the post, confirming that he was indeed, over it. 

Something tells us Spieth is going to be just fine. And that thing is the three majors he's got in his back pocket at just 24 years old.
