Jordan Spieth matched Tiger Woods’ four-round course record of 18 under par to claim victory in the Masters on Sunday. The 21-year-old Spieth, who held the two-round course record and three-round course record coming into the finale, also set the mark for most birdies at a single Masters with 28 for the tournament.
Here is the moment that he claimed that record with his 26th birdie of the 2015 Masters on the tenth hole:
Spieth, who also became the first person to ever reach 19 under par at the tournament, finished the rare wire-to-wire victory by missing a tricky but makeable putt for par on the 18th hole that would have given him the four-round record outright. As it stands, he shares the mark with Tiger Woods, who was also 21 when he claimed his first major championship by winning the Masters with a course record of 270 in 1997. Spieth is the second-youngest Masters champion in history—the youngest was Woods—after just missing out on the title by finishing second to Bubba Watson last year.
When Spieth was just 14-years-old he said that his ultimate goal was to win the Masters:
Seven years later, he has that green jacket. After this week's performance, it does not seem like it will be his last, a fact he acknowledged just before receiving his prize from last year's champion Watson.
“I want to be like Bubba, I want to win two Masters,” Spieth said.
