Jordan Spieth is the 2015 Masters Champion, Ties Tiger Woods Lowest Score of 18-Under
By Michael Shamburger
Jordan Spieth won his first green jacket on Sunday. Spieth finished 18-under par (270), four strokes ahead of second place finishers Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson, who finished at 14-under. Spieth, who is 21-years old, is the second youngest Masters winner behind only Tiger Woods.
In capturing his first major championship, Spieth set multiple records, carding the lowest 36-holes, lowest 54-holes, tied the lowest 72-holes 18-under set by Tiger Woods in 1997, and had the most birdies in Masters tournament history with 28. Phil Mickelson previously held the record with 25.
Just take a look at that leaderboard. Finishing ahead of those names is an accomplishment in itself.
…. and Woods -5.
