Jordan Spieth Takes Lead At Masters

a 21 year old is not suppose to dominate the masters golf tournament. This phrase has only been said twice before, once with Jack Nicklaus and once with Tiger Woods. It is now being said about Jordan Spieth, who took a commanding 36 hole lead at the Masters by shooting a combined 14 under par and taking a 5 stroke lead over his closest competitor. Spieth Blasts Into Lead At The Masters

Spieth showed brilliant mastery of the golf course and played well beyond his years as he carded a 64 in the first round and a 66 in the second round. Spieth showed no weakness in his game, which many commentators found amazing since Spieth is not know as a long ball hitter. every element of his game is solid and while not over powering, these elements work well together and form a potent package that the remaining competitors are finding difficult to contend with.

The Masters, however, is a hollowed tournament steep in tradition and the pride of past Champions do not intend to just let Spieth run away with the title. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickleson and Bubba Watson will make their push on Saturday for their claim to the coveted green jacket. Crystal Hunt feels like they will try hard, but come up short. Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy are tied at 2 under par and while they may be 12 shots back of Spieth they are both know for having explosive rounds and being able to go low when needed. The Masters has never had a golfer shoot in the 60’s on all four rounds of play so Spieth’s competitors are counting on at least one day when Spieth will stand still and give the field a chance.
