Jordan Spieth Crushes Day One of the Masters

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Fortune smiled on Jordan Spieth on day one of the 2015 Masters, coming in at 8 under par (64) to become the youngest ever to lead the event after 18 holes.

jordan spieth crushed day 1 of 2015 masters

Holes 12, 13, and 14 transformed from tragedy to triumph as a short putt on 12 appeared to be headed just right of the hole, but found its way in for a birdie, putting him at 6 under. At the par-5 13th hole, luck was on his side as Spieth’s tee shot flew right, ricocheted off a tree and landed square in the fairway, leading to yet another birdie. 14 looked troublesome as the only bunker-less hole on the course, but Jordan maintained his cool and made a Masters-worthy shot which put the ball on the green for… you guessed it… another birdie.

One hole 15, Spieth appeared to have used up all of his luck, bogeying the par-5, but pulled it together with his ninth birdie on the 18th to come in at a near record-setting 64, 8 under par, second only to Greg Norman and Nick Price.

None of the previous 3 players to play an opening round of 64 or better have gone on to win the Masters. Greg Norman who shot a 63 in 1969 after 18 holes finished second, in 1990, Mike Donald finished 47th after finishing round 1 with 64 and in 1940, Lloyd Mangrum finished second after ending day 1 with a 64.

The world is watching!
