Believe it or not, the sport of golf is moving as fast as ever other major sport in the world.
No longer something that only middle-aged men excel in, three of the top five men’s players are under 28 and the best female player in the world is 17.
So it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to see how much Jordan Spieth, 21, dominated this weekend at the masters. No one could catch Spieth. With a combined 24 major champions, bona fide superstars like Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy all chased the young star throughout the weekend.
He ended up winning the green jacket with a record-setting performance. He shot 18 under at one point, tying Woods’ Masters record, which he also set when he was 21. He also became the first player to get under 19 in the Masters, a tournament that has been played since 1934.
