The Golf Blog says: After the first nine, 54-hole leader and defending champion Jordan Spieth opened up a 5-shot lead at 7-under. But Jordan proceeded to bogey 10 and 11, and on the par 3 12th hole at Amen Corner, Jordan dunked 2 in the water for a quadruple bogey. Quite an implosion.

Spieth made a slight comeback but it was too little too late. Englishman Danny Willett won the Masters at -5, shooting a bogey-free 67 on Sunday.

The Golf Blog says: After the first nine, 54-hole leader and defending Masters champion Jordan Spieth opened up a 5-shot lead at 7-under. But, in a 30-minutes span, things unraveled. Jordan proceeded to bogey 10 and 11, and on the par 3 12th hole at Amen Corner, Jordan dunked 2 in the water for a quadruple bogey. Quite an implosion.

Spieth made a slight comeback but it was too little too late, finishing at 2-under par. Englishman Danny Willett won the Masters at -5, shooting a bogey-free 67 on Sunday.

Video of Jordan’s 12th hole is at 1:29 on the video above.



The Golf Blog: Rory McIlroy posts 77 in first pairing with Jordan Spieth; will McIlroy scale back weightlifting now?

The Golf Blog says: The first marquee matchup between Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy was reminiscent of the pairing of Nick Faldo and Greg Norman in the 1996 Masters. Faldo shot 67, Norman 78. Yesterday, Spieth shot 73 (after giving up 3 shots in the final 2 holes) and Rory 77, but it wasn’t as close as it looks. For most of the day, Rory was no match for the course or for Jordan Spieth.

Instead of weightlifting as much, will Rory now focus on his golf game? Spieth does not look like a bulked up weightlifter. Nor does Bernhard Langer for that matter.

The Golf Blog says: The Masters had fierce winds and fast greens on Saturday that turned the Masters into a U.S. Open. Only 4 players are under par, with defending Masters champion Jordan Spieth leading the way at -4, followed by his former junior golf competitor Smylie Kaufman at -3 and 58 year old, 2 time champion Bernhard Langer at -1.

Spieth had a chance to post -6, with a comfortable 3-shot lead but he went 3 over in the final 2 holes to come back to the field.

58 year old Bernhard Langer continued to post solid rounds at Augusta and is still in contention. If he wins, he would be the oldest major winner ever.
