Silvis, IL (Sports Network) - Jordan Spieth outlasted David Hearn and Zach Johnson with a par on the fifth playoff hole on Sunday to capture his first career win at the John Deere Classic.

Spieth birdied five of his last six holes, including a chip in from a greenside bunker at the 18th, to close out his third straight 6-under 65 and meet Johnson (68) and Hearn (69) at 19-under-par 265.

The 19-year-old American became the first teenager to win a PGA Tour event since 1931.

Martin Flores fired an 8-under 63 during his final round at TPC Deere Run to jump into a share of fourth place with third-round leader Daniel Summerhays (72) and Jerry Kelly (68) at 18-under.

Patrick Reed (67), Matt Jones (68) and J.J. Henry (69) shared seventh at 17- under 267.
