Jordan Spieth reigns supreme at the Hero Golf Challenge, with a winning margin of ten shots.
Jordan dominated his competitors, destroyed the Isleworth Golf and Country Club course and easily won the Hero World Challenge. A final round -6 under par 66 gave his wonderful winning total of -26 under par, and a ten shot victory. He has now won back to back tournaments, previously the Australian Open and now Tigers tournament.
Starting with a seven shot lead in the final round Jordan proceeded to card three birdies in four holes and turned the final three hours into a peaceful walk in the Florida sunshine. He said of that front nine;
“It was the most fun I ever had playing nine holes of golf.”
The 10-shot victory was the largest margin of the year in golf, and broke the tournament record of seven shots that host Tiger Woods had in 2007. He was happy to end his year on high note;
“Whether my emotions showed it or not I’m not sure, but inside we were really very pleased with the year and how it came to a close.”
“This caps off the best golfing year that I’ve ever had. Each year has been a little better than the last. Hope it continues in 2015.”
For the record, Henrik Stenson won the race for second place, ten shots off the pace at -16 under par. He acknowledged that Jordan had his game under control;
“It was a one-horse race, all the rest of us had to do was battle it out for second, really.”
“He was in pretty much full control of every part of his game.”
Keegan Bradley and Patrick Reed tied for third, -15 under par. Keegan was also impressed with Jordan’s play;
“The kid is playing great.”
“I wanted to go over there and tackle him and break his putter. No, I love Jordan. I’m happy for him. He was pretty much unbeatable this week.”
Tournament host Tiger Woods finished tied in last place, he too acknowledged the special play of Jordan;
”He’s playing some pretty special golf right now.”
It will be fun to watch Jordan and Rory as they tackle the Majors in 2015, there is some really good golf on the horizon.
