The Golf Blog: A new era in golf, Jordan Spieth ties Masters record at -18, matching same mark by Tiger Woods at 21 years old

The Golf Blog says: Today had the same feeling back in 1997 when Tiger Woods won the Masters at age 21, setting the record at -18 at the Masters. 18 years later, Jordan Spieth, who is also 21, tied Tiger’s record of -18. A bogey on the 18th hole cost Spieth the all-time record (-19). Just like 1997, there’s a palpable feeling of a changing of the guard in golf. The young guns are taking over. In 1997, it was Tiger taking over from Greg Norman and a cadre of other world class golfers (and, in a way, putting an end to the Nicklaus era). When we look back to 2015, it may well be Jordan (and Rory) taking over from Tiger Woods and a cadre of other world class golfers (Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, and others). Jordan rules.

The excitement this week was great for golf. Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose tied for second at -14. Rory McIlroy was fourth at -12, shooting an impressive 66 on Sunday. Tiger Woods couldn’t get anything going and ended up with a final round 73.

The Golf Blog: Tiger Woods’s short game is back on track, no yips at Masters

The Golf Blog says: Tiger Woods had 63 days to fix his short game. Former coach Hank Haney (who himself has the driving yips) wrote an article harping about how Tiger had the “yips.” Many others doubted that Tiger could fix his short game woes.

We thought Tiger Woods would fix his short game problems, given how great his short game was for most of his career. Plus, he had over 2 months of practice (without tournament play) to devote to getting his short game back on track. Well, we were right. If Tiger had the yips as Hank Haney claimed, Tiger’s fixed them.
