article imageJordan Spieth dominates 2015 Masters

Augusta - Jordan Spieth won the 2015 Masters by four strokes. He took the lead early on and held it to his last putt. The 21-year-old Texan is the youngest golfer since Tiger Woods to win the honorary green jacket. His 18-under display bagged him $1.8 million.
The Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia has hosted the Masters Tournament since 1934. In 1997, Tiger Woods became the youngest Masters winner ever at age 21 years, three months old and still holds that record today. Jordan Spieth was 21 years, 8 months old when he grabbed the winning title Sunday.
Spieth was the runner-up to Bubba Watson in the 2014 classic. He had the lead with 11 holes left, but he faded away in the end. After his triumphant win Sunday, he reflected back to that day one year earlier and said, "I was already hungry from last year... I had an opportunity and watched it slip away."
When the monumental moment arrived, he embraced his long-time girlfriend and family members. Soon thereafter, he was quoted as saying, "It was very nerve-wracking. I didn't sleep at all last night. Just got out there and got in a little rhythm. With two major champions right behind, I couldn't let up. It was the most incredible week of my life. This is as great as it gets in our sport. It was remarkable."
Jordan's younger sister Ellie keeps the top-notch golfer humble and he knows just how fortunate he is. She was born with a neurological disorder that placed her on the spectrum of Autism. He also has a younger brother named Steven. Spieth's mother, father, and brother were there to congratulate him at his shining moment.
So, what is next for the young man that stands on top of the golfing world today? He said that he wants to be like Bubba Watson and win a second Masters tournament. Jordan Spieth is currently ranked the No. 2 golfer in the PGA and the odds of him winning the Augusta classic again are looking quite good for the young athlete.
