(REUTERS) - Jordan Spieth clinched his 10th PGA Tour victory in the same way as his first, by holing a bunker shot to win the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut on Sunday.

Spieth triumphed in stunning fashion by holing out the sand shot from 30 feet for birdie to beat fellow American Daniel Berger at the first extra hole at TPC River Highlands.

They embarked on a play-off after finishing regulation tied at 12-under par 268, two strokes clear of compatriot Charley Hoffman and New Zealand's Danny Lee.

Former world No. 1 Spieth stumbled with a poor back nine to card 70, while Berger shot 67 to force a play-off.

Spieth, 23, joins elite company as the second-youngest player since 1945 to notch 10 Tour victories after Tiger Woods.
