Singapore Open winner Song gets selfie with Spieth after beating him


Young-han Song wanted to remember the moment he beat world No. 1 Jordan Spieth. What better way to commemorate it than with a selfie?

So that's what Song did, ahead of his press conference after beating Spieth on Monday to capture the Asian Tour's Singapore Open for his first-ever pro win. Spieth obliged, albeit maybe not as gleefully had he won.

Song and Spieth were among a small group of players who has to return to Sentosa Golf Club on Monday to wrap up the inaugural event plagued by tropical storms, including heavy rains and strong winds. Spieth only had one stroke to take on Monday, making a 5-foot birdie putt on the par-5 finishing hole to apply pressure on the Korean pro.

Facing a 12-foot par bid for his first shot of the day, Song drained the putt, then made pars on the final two holes to lock up the win by a shot over Spieth at 12-under 272.

The 24-year-old picked up $180,000 from the $1 million prize pool for the win. Spieth? He got a reported $1.2 million for just playing.
