Masters Champion Jordan Spieth Motivated by Former UGA Golfer

AUGUSTA — A new green jacket went to a 21-year-old this weekend after Jordan Spieth won the Masters tournament in Augusta. This was only Spieth’s second appearance in the Masters after a runner-up finish to former University of Georgia golfer Bubba Watson.

Spieth says he was motivated by last year’s loss to Watson.Spieth

“I was already hungry from last year. Having had an opportunity and watched it slip away and watched Bubba win,” Spieth said. “I knew I had a chance to win that tournament.”

Spieth had a strong lead from the first day of the tournament. He was the frontrunner from Friday all the way until he finished, winning by four strokes and tying Tiger Woods for the tournament record at 18 under par.
