Jordan Spieth wire-to-wire and Manchester United down Chelsea
London, April 12: As what would have been Masters week draws to a close, Jordan Spieth can reflect upon the fifth anniversary of one of the most dominant displays the famous Augusta National course has ever seen. April 12 also marks the date when Manchester United once again got the better of 2008 Champions League final foes Chelsea in Europe’s top competition. Here, we take a look back at those memorable sporting moments.
2015 – Spieth dominates at Augusta At the tender age of 21, Spieth became the first wire-to-wire winner of the Masters since Raymond Floyd in 1976. His final score of 18 under tied Tiger Wood’s all-time best-winning mark from 1997, obliterating the field to become golf’s latest superstar. It was the beginning of a purple patch for Spieth, who added the U.S. Open in thrilling fashion 10 weeks later and came second at that year’s US PGA Championship, while a third major came into his possession at the 2017 Open Championship. However, with golf joining the bulk of the sporting world on hiatus at present, the American finds himself languishing 56th in the world rankings and without a win to his name for almost three years.
