Jordan Spieth, all 21-years of him, ran away in a wire-to-wire performance at The Masters, capturing the green jacket with an 18-under par and four-stroke win.
Spieth birdied six holes while bogeying four, but his lead was hardly ever challenged. At multiple points, Spieth held a six-stroke lead. Justin Rose (T-2) closed the gap to just three after hole No. 7, but it was never closer than that.
It was a weekend of records for Spieth. He was the first player to ever reach 19-under in The Masters. He held the record for lowest score after 54 holes. He tied the largest 36-hole lead as well.
This is Spieth’s first career major.
Rose and Phil Mickelson tied for second. Mickelson finished 3-under on the day and 14-under for the tournament. Rose was 2-under for the day.
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy finished fourth at 12-under after a 6-under afternoon. His final pairing partner didn’t fare so well. Tiger Woods injured his wrist during his round and finished 1-over in the final round. He finished tied for 17th.
