Jordan Spieth wasn’t able to finish the job Sunday, but at 20 years of age, he’ll get over it. All he has is two or three decades to fill up his trophy case with hardware and his closests with green jackets.

Playing in the final pairing of the Masters, the first-timer, who played like an all-timer in his first test at Augusta National, actually led the tournament by two shots before Bubba Watson overwhelmed him with his unparalleled combination of power and finesse.

“I got off to kind of a dream start for Sunday at Augusta,” said Spieth. “It’s just so hard to play the first seven holes, I would say, well out here, and I was three‑under through the first seven. So if you told me that when I woke up this morning, I would have thought: You know, it would be difficult for me to not win this golf tournament.”
