Jordan Spieth majors win: Jordan has seized his first major at 21. We take a look at the incredible career of this young golfing legend in the making.
The Record-Breaking 2015 Golf Masters
Jordan Spieth equalled the lowest winning score in the entire history of the Masters, putting on an incredible display at the Augusta event to secure his first major. The young American sportsman triumphed on eighteen under, after shooting a two-under seventy.
Phil Mickelson, who has previously won the championship on three occasions, was runner up, together with Justin Rose, the English player.
Spieth is now the worlds No.2. He equalled the winning score previously set by Tiger Woods in 1997, becoming the second youngest winner of the Masters to date. He is the first to achieve twenty-eight birdies, and the first in thirty-nine years to lead the championship from start to finish.
Spieth and Rose played as partners for the last round, and Rose was rather unlucky not to come closer to success, putting in a notably strong performance that would have been sufficient to win twelve of the past thirteen Masters.
Career to Date: A Legend in the Making
- Born in 1993, Jordan Spieth is a US professional golfer who is now ranked second in the World.
- His winning score of 270 (-18) in this year's Masters has netted him over $1.8 million in competition winnings.
- The last round saw him briefly maintaining a score of -19, but the final hole produced a bogey after he failed to hit the fairway.
- He has created his own charitable trust, and credits his autistic sister with providing the inspiration he needed to succeed.
