It should have been no surprise that if someone could try to pull off one of the biggest comebacks in Masters history, it would be Jordan Spieth. No golfer has been as successful at Augusta in the last five years as Spieth. Heading into 2018, Spieth only haD won once at Augusta, but he also only played in five Masters. Spieth had won 25 percent of the Masters he has played in, and been in contention for nearly every other one as well.
Spieth had his worst outing in 2017 with a T-11 finish at -1. He finished T-2 in 2016 at -2, and won the entire tournament in 2015 with a splendid -18. Spieth placed T-2 his Augusta debut at -5 in 2014.
Through two rounds in the 2018 Masters, Spieth still felt like he had a chance at another green jacket, and he was right.
“I’ve taken a lot of punches on this golf course,” Spieth told The Augusta Chronicle. “So to come back from 3-over through two holes and only shoot 2-over with a limited number of looks, it’s not so bad. I’m still in this golf tournament.”
Through 14 holes of the final round, Spieth had shot nine holes under par for the day. Spieth had the lead after Day 1 at -6 at 66, but fell back on Day 2 and Day 3.
