Did anyone expect a 20-year-old to be tied for the lead going into the final day of the 2014 Masters? I know I didn’t. Well, 20-year-old Jordan Spieth is tied for the lead going into the final round of the tournament. Win or lose, he has a very bright future ahead of him.
Winning a major this early in your career can really kick start everything. Just look at Tiger Woods. He is the youngest player to ever win the Masters. He has had some success so far — probably the best golfer ever. However, Spieth can one-up Woods by winning today. He would then become the youngest golfer to ever win the Masters.
Although doing that would be great, we will probably be talking about Spieth a lot even if he doesn’t take home the green jacket today. It’s not everyday that some youngster comes in and threatens a Tiger Woods record. Especially one this big.
The talent is their for Spieth to succeed. That is the case with so many different golfers. The problem is the fact that golf is such a mind game. Spieth has held his own so far by shooting three solid rounds.
Spieth has already finished in the top four four times this season. The Masters is not his first rodeo, just the biggest one.
My guess is that Bubba Watson will come away with the victory, but Spieth certainly has a good shot at stealing the trophy from Watson and the rest of the field. Regardless, Spieth will be playing in the final group today. Winning would make history, but he still has a bright future no matter what the outcome.
