Jordan Spieth breaks records with win at The Masters

Jordan Spieth might not be the next Tiger Woods yet.  We say yet because Jordan just served notice to the golfing world with a record-breaking first major victory at the Masters last Sunday.

The 21-year-old became the second-youngest player to win at Augusta, behind only Tigers 1997 win, and just the fifth man to lead the prestigious tournament from wire to wire.

The American went into Sunday’s final round with a four-shot lead, extended that by one after his opening nine holes, and at the 10th he beat Phil Mickelson’s Masters record of 26 birdies for the week.

Unlike last year, where he flailed a bit and lost the lead just before the nine-hole turn on the last day, this time he was simply unstoppable.

Spieth’s 28th birdie, at the 15th hole, made him the first player to reach 19 under par at the Masters.  A bogey on 18 meant he ended tied with Tiger Woods the 14-time major champion’s mark for low score in tournament history.

The Texan couldn’t match Woods’ 12-shot winning margin of 18 years ago, but finished four ahead of second-placed Justin Rose and Phil “Lefty” Mickelson.

So we would like to say congratulations to Jordan on you becoming a Masters Champion and we look forward to seeing you in the decades to come.  Well Done!

 

Let us know what you think of Jordan in general or his win at The Masters. Hit ‘em straight!
