The numbers: Jordan Spieth breaks records galore at Masters

first_imgJordan Spieth broke new ground at Augusta as he claimed his first major title with a stunning four-shot triumph at the Masters.We take a look at the numerous Masters records now held by the unflappable 21-year-old American, who is set to rise to second in the world rankings.It was one of the greatest performances in Major championship history as he fired a final round 70 to win the Masters at Augusta by four shots.Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson finished tied for second place after a stunning afternoon of golf which will send shockwaves through the sport. Rose’s total of -14 has been bettered only five times in the tournament’s history, but the Englishman found himself four shots behind a 21-year-old superstar in the making whose display was every bit as impressive – if not more so – than Tiger Woods’ record-breaking victory back in 1997.LOWEST WINNING SCORESpieth finished the week with a score of 270, matching the 18-under total achieved by Tiger Woods when he claimed his first green jacket in 1997. This year’s winner would have claimed the record outright had he not bogeyed the last. LOWEST 54-HOLE SCOREA third-round 70 enabled Spieth to shave a stroke off the previous best 54-hole total. Woods (in 1997) and Raymond Floyd (in 1976) had both completed three rounds in 201 strokes, but Spieth became the first man to take just 200.LOWEST 36-HOLE SCORESpieth’s halfway score was also one better than the 131 recorded by Floyd in 1976. In following an opening 64 with a second-round 66, he equalled the lowest 36-hole total in any major.YOUNGEST FIRST-ROUND LEADER The aforementioned 64 meant Spieth became the youngest player to lead after day one at Augusta, a record that previously belonged to world number one Rory McIlroy. He is also the second-youngest Masters champion behind Woods, at 21 years and eight months.MOST BIRDIESPhil Mickelson made 25 birdies in the 2001 tournament, but Spieth roared past that tally with an astonishing 28 gains across his four rounds. Somewhat surprisingly, the champion did not register an eagle.FIRST MAN TO 19 UNDERWhile Spieth had to ultimately settle for a share of the tournament’s lowest winning score, his birdie at the par-five 15th on Sunday saw him become the first man to reach 19 under in the history of the Masters. FIRST WIRE-TO-WIRE WINNER SINCE 1976Floyd was the last man to lead after each of the four rounds, and Spieth displayed admirable composure to follow suit, maintaining an advantage of at least three strokes throughout the final day.FIRST SOLO FIRST-ROUND LEADER TO WIN SINCE 1984In a week that saw Ben Crenshaw make his 44th and final Masters appearance, Spieth emulated his fellow Texan’s 1984 success by converting an outright first-round lead into victory. In the 30 Masters between Crenshaw’s first Masters title and the triumph of Spieth, no solo leader from round one had gone on to win.–last_img read more
