How it happened: Spieth entered Sunday, tied with Wallace for the top spot in the Under-12 rankings, and Hoffman was two shots higher. Spieth looked neurotic earlier. Although he didn’t hit the fairway, he played a few willful serves in the first few holes and caught a birdie on the par 5 hole. However, these nerves are short-lived. Spieth never lost the lead and made progress with almost a trump card on the 174 yards (par three). He scored 2 feet, which was one of his top four birdies, this was his first solo lead today and never looked back.
He then said: “I really feel relaxed.” “I think I just want to smile, try and have some fun. On these Sundays that I have been fighting for, this is a challenge for me.”
After several years of swing battles, Spieth caught the heavy blow and used the wedge to look exceptionally sharp, as he stood out in the Hoffman Challenge for the Augusta national team ticket. When Hoffman sank a 20-foot ball on the par-3 on the 16th to enter Spis’s shot for the third time in the final round, Spis stepped up the next tee and put the driving force at 366 yards. Passing to within 75 yards, par 4 on the 17th hole, another birdie was created and Hoffman returned to the second hole. And because Spieth always finds a way to make the game fun, he hooks the figure 8 iron on the turf-hardly on the video scoreboard-while lying on the par 5 par, but manages to 9 The score escaped and won by 2 strokes.
24/7: Patton Kizzire swallowed 7 birdies and had no bogeys. He shot 65 from the field and finished fourth in T-11 or higher this season.
Shooting on the day: Spieth hit some beautiful wedges on the back nine holes to build an important birdie, but the tee on the third hole was the spark of his final round.
The biggest disappointment: Wallace. Spieth and Hoffman turned the completion game into a two-person game. The Englishman was basically just a bystander in the final trio, and the Englishman was closed due to the three birdies. The game ended at the age of 69.
Daily quote: “Man, it’s a long road. Many times I’m not sure if I’m going to talk to you here [Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis] About this now. I never really doubted whether I could get back to where I wanted to go, but when you lose faith many times, it is difficult to see positive progress. …This is a huge victory for me. I must have been thinking about it for a long time. ” – Spieth
