Jordan Spieth, 21 year old is the new Young Master of golf after winning the 2015 Masters. Spieth now joins the greats after his stunning Augusta win with an record equalling 18 under par total. Speith achieved a very rare feat of winning wire to wire to win his first major. He finished four ahead of Justin Rose and Phil Michelson.
Few of the major championships are dominated by a single player. The 2015 Masters was one of those events as Jordan Spieth never lost the lead from start to finish and he now deserves his place amongst the games elite.
Tiger Woods, who staged an admirable return to form after his fall to outside the World’s top 100, magaed to finish in 17th place wehn few felt he had any chnace of making the cut. The World No.1 Rory McIlroy staged a fantastic fight back having been at one point three over for the tournament and managed to finish in 4th place on 12 under par.
It was all about Spieth though as the records came tumling down. His 26th birdie of the competition, produced as early as the 10th hole of his final round, was a tournament record. The 28th made him the only player ever to reach 19 under par in the Masters. He is the second youngest Masters champion in history. At an aggregate score of 270, 18 under, Spieth won by four. Raymond Floyd was the last player to lead from wire to wire in the first major of the year and that was in 1976.
After his win, the Titleist Brand player, Jordan Speith was able to ponder on early Sunday evening as he donned the winner’s green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club, what if felt like to win the Masters.
“It’s incredible. It’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever felt,” said Spieth. “This was arguably the greatest day of my life.”
Spieth orchestrated an epic performance that culminated with a record-tying 18-under total (64-66-70-70), and a comfortable Sunday walk up to the 18th green, where he tapped-in to win his first major championship by four shots.
“I’ll never forget watching the front of the hole as the last tap-in went in the front edge. There was no need for crazy celebrations,” said Spieth.
“At that point I was just really, really pleased with the whole week, being out on top, being able to stay on top and to conquer my favorite tournament in the world.”
Let’s take a closer look at Spieth’s winning setup from the Masters.
