Jordan Spieth Goes Wire to Wire to Win 2015 Masters

After falling short in last year’s Masters to Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth got his revenge and with impressive fashion. Spieth conquered the field and Augusta National, going wire to wire for the victory, the first player to do so sine Raymond Floyd did in 1976.

In Masters tournament that featured a historic leadeerboard towards the top that included Tiger Woods, Rory Mcilroy, Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose, there was no real threat to Spieth. The only players that had a great shot catching Spieth were Charley Hoffman for the first two days, and Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson on the last two days.

Spieth finished tying the Masters record of 18- breaking Tiger Woods’ record that was set back in 1997. A big shot came for Spieth when he had a beautiful recovery chip shot on the famed 11th hole which set him up for a tap in par save.

Another important shot was the key par putt he hit on hole 16 which practically sealed the deal for the 21-year old. Justin Rose came out of nowhere to make things interesting but his some unfortunate shots and Spieth took advantage of the opportunity.

Spieth’s recovery ability and putting is what pretty much won the Green Jacket for him. He has quickly established himself as one of the better recovery players and one of the best finishers in golf.

Among those who finished towards the top, Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson finished 14- in a tie for third, Rory Mcilroy, who had a lot of hype going into this one, finished in fourth at 12- and young talent Hedeki Matsuyama finished in fifth at 11-. Rounding out the top 10 were Paul Casey, Ian Poulter, Dustin Johnson, Hunter Mahan, Charley Hoffman and 2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson.

Spieth has become the second youngest player to win the Masters.

So Jordan Spieth is your 2015 Masters champion.

If Justin Rose shot 14 under and Phil Mickelson also shot 14 under, they tied for second. How could Phil finish third if they tied?! Good grief.
