After struggling to make the cut, McIlroy changed his putter on Sunday and posted seven birdies as he charged up the leader-board.
Even after Spieth's incredible hole out, Berger - a victor at Memphis two weeks ago - narrowly missed a 50-footer from off the green that would have forced a second playoff hole. So there's not really much you can say.
Spieth's star power drew massive crowds all weekend to the TPC River Highlands, where he led wire-to-wire until leaving the door open with a couple of late bogeys.
Spieth, who entered Sunday with a one-shot lead over Boo Weekley, led by two at the turn but bogeyed the 12th and 14th to drop to 11 under and into a tie alongside Berger.
He should have put things away in regulation.
Berger blocked his drive into the gallery at the last, but he gouged his second into a greenside bunker and splashed out to three feet before safely nailing the putt to set the target at 12 under, but he would be undone by the brilliance of Spieth at the first extra hole.
"My ball staying up on 13, and then the one staying up on 15, that definitely if the rough weren't grown out the way it was this year, it would have been in the water".
Nearly as epic as the shot was his celebration, as he chest-bumped his caddy and chucked his wedge.
This was a victory to remember. "If I can take advantages of the opportunities I have been giving myself, I know I can do that then I can shoot scores like (the closing 64)". "I was trying to make him feel as confident as I could".

The building and another one elsewhere in Vancouver, British Columbia, have become popular gathering spots to protest US policies. His company, Talon International, later defaulted on a loan from an Austrian bank, which sold the loan to JCF Capital.
Berger, for his part, handled disappointment well. The 43-year-old Weekley, playing just in front of Spieth, birdied five of the last eight holes, basking in the chants of "Boooo!" He shot a 2-over 72 in his final round, also finishing 2-over for the week.
Hoffman eagled the par-3 13th hole and followed with two birdies, but then his round fell apart with a double bogey at the par-3 16th hole and bogeys at Nos. Notes: The field, unusually strong for the Travelers Championship, includes Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Justin Thomas. "But you can't do anything about that". Both were born in 1993, part of a young stable of rising stars who graduated high school in 2011 and are primed to take over for Woods as the face of the sport.
"I mean, I felt like I putted pretty well". So on my approach shot I thought if it was not going to carry, that bunker's not bad. I need this to be over now.

But Spieth turned the tide in a flash.
He also told the crowd after winning, "I'm probably going to buy a house here".
Spieth said he "definitely got the right breaks". On Sunday, he finally found one that cooperated. That was as loud as I think I've ever created.
