Masters 2015


by Riley Gill

Another Masters has come and gone, leaving Jordan Spieth the new golf champion. Spieth ranks second to Tiger Woods and is the youngest victor of the Masters by just over 6 months. He also tied the record at 18-under on the Masters 72-hole course and became the fifth wire-to-wire champion, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in 39 years. Spieth also earned himself a front page picture on Sports Illustrated- the last time a golfer made the cover of SI was in 2014 when Rory Mcllroy won the British Open.

Spieth has launched his career into stardom, with sponsors like Under Armour, Rolex, and AT&T. While Spieth missed out on a bid to compete in the Masters last year, he came back this year and had one of the most dominant wins in the history of the competition.

Spieth lead the pack from start to finish with no less than three points. The closest competitors were Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose, who tied for second. His victory at Augusta National will place him at 2nd overall behind Rory Mcllroy, who came fourth at this years Masters. While Jordan Spieth still has a way to go, second is an impressive title for one of the youngest players in the game.
