Jordan Spieth became the second youngest golfer to win the Masters, shooting an incredible -18 at Augusta National.

Spieth won his first green jacket just five months older than Tiger Woods won his first at age 21. Perhaps more impressively, Spieth tied Tiger’s 1997 record of 270 shots through four rounds. Spieth also became the first player at the Masters to reach a score of -19. So it’s safe to say we will probably see more out of this kid in the near future.

No one really could challenge Spieth during all four rounds. Not only did Spieth tie Tiger’s record, he held the highest Masters score in history through both the second and third rounds. Spieth also set the record for the most birdies through four rounds.

Spieth certainly isn’t as flashy as Tiger, but we could be seeing the next Tiger Woods in the making. The question on the minds of all golf fans at this point, will EA Sports make Jordan Spieth PGA Tour in the near future? Rory McIlroy stole it from Tiger, but could Spieth take it from Rory?
