Spieth 'Putts' on the Green Jacket
In the process of claiming his first Major title Jordan Spieth set a few new records along the way. He became the second youngest player to win at Augusta, only behind Tiger Woods in 1997 and he is just the fifth in Masters history to lead from start to finish.
Spieth's halfway total of 14 under par on Friday broke the 39-year-old record set by Ray Floyd in 1976, and his 54-hole effort of 16 under was also a new Augusta best.
Jordan Spieth on his green jacket: 'I plan on not taking it off for a while... I'll probably sleep in it for a few nights!' Spieth seems to quietly go about his business, he is not impressively long off the tee, or accurate, but he is fast emerging as a World class player and I am sure we will see some fantastic duels between him and Rory McIlroy over the next decade.
