Augusta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) – Jordan Spieth bogeyed the final hole on
Sunday, but the only thing it cost him was a Masters record.
Spieth closed with a 2-under 70 to win the Masters by four strokes. The win
was his first major championship title.
The 21-year-old Texan was the first to reach 19-under par at the Masters with
a birdie at the 15th, but his bogey at the 18th left him at 18-under-par 270,
which tied him with Tiger Woods for low 72-hole score in tournament history.
Three-time champion Phil Mickelson closed with a 3-under 69 to grab a share of
second place at minus-14. Justin Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion, also
bogeyed the last for a 2-under 70 and a share of second with Mickelson.
