Jordan Spieth’s record setting four rounds at Augusta this past weekend is something that will go down in the annals of golf. If Spieth was asked, however, probably the most rewarding aspect was him winning the 2015 Masters, and getting a chance to put on that green jacket. The 21-year-old Spieth finished the final round scoring 18 under 270. Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose tied for second at 14 under.
Spieth who played incredibly throughout the entire tournament, scored an opening 64 and then added 66 to that to set a Masters record for the lowest score after 36 holes. In the third round of the tournament, he shot a 70, and set another Masters record for lowest score after 56.
Speith says that he looks forward to the year ahead after winning, and becoming the 2015 Masters Champion. He says that he knows that it carries a lot of weight, but looks forward to the challenges that lie ahead. He is also looking forward to finding himself back at Augusta again for next year’s Masters Tournament, when he gets to play as defending champion.
