With a 1-over 73 final round on Sunday at the Masters, Jordan Spieth tied for second place with a four-day total of 2-under 286.
Spieth opened with a 66 on Thursday and appeared to be on his way to an unprecedented feat — back-to-back, wire-to-wire Masters victories.
But a three-hole stretch on the back 9 of the final round cost Spieth his second-straight Green Jacket. Spieth had birdies on four consecutive holes — 6, 7, 8 and 9 — then it fell apart for the world’s No. 2 golfer.
He bogeyed 10 and 11 (both Par 4s), then the wheels completely came off on No. 12. He put up a 7 on the par 3 after finding water. A quadruple bogey.
But the roller coaster round of Spieth continued. With Danny Willett in the clubhouse with the lead at 5-under, Spieth starting making birdies again. He birdied 13 and 15 before a bogey on 17 ended Spieth’s bid to catch Willett.
