Jordan Spieth won The Masters this year, and not only did he fulfill a lifelong dream but he made history in the process to become the youngest winner ever at Augusta.
Another Masters tournament at Augusta has come and gone, and the youngest member of the club ever has won golf’s finest honor. There are pristine sports trophies out there, but none seem to be as pristine as winning a green jacket at The Masters. That’s what 21-year old Jordan Spieth managed to do this weekend when he nearly set an Augusta record on his way to being the youngest person ever to win a green jacket.
It wasn’t an easy weekend for Spieth, but it was one that nonetheless ended in victory. The moment he finished his final hole and secured his first win at The Masters, he shared a moment with his grandfather that will no doubt go down in Masters history as one of the more tearjerking moments ever.
Here’s what the final day of The Masters looked like as Jordan Spieth took him his first green jacket.

Spieth will be back at The Masters next year to try and do what Bubba Watson did — win The Masters twice. Other golfers have completed the feat of winning The Masters twice, but before he put on his green jacket Spieth noted that he wanted to be like Bubba.
That’s not a bad road to want to travel, but for now Spieth can relish in the fact that he has his first win at The Masters. He has plenty of years ahead of him to win more green jackets, but he’s a champion today and that’s all that matters.
