The Masters Tournament is uniquely famous for many reasons: the breathtaking Augusta National golf course, the iconic Green Jacket, the legendary winning performances, and even the humbling collapses. Jordan Spieth added to the list of legendary performances last year in 2015, so it’s harshly befitting that he would also contribute to the humbling collapses just 1 year later.
Holding a commanding 5-shot lead heading into the final 9 holes of the 2016 Masters Tournament, Spieth bogeyed both the 10th and 11th holes before drowning 2 golf balls (and his chance at a historic repeat Masters win) into Rae’s Creek on the 12th hole. Meanwhile, a 28-year old Englishman named Danny Willett played Amen Corner in 1 under par on Sunday, leading to a 66 for the day and a -5 score to par for the week, enough to earn him his first Major Championship of his career. Danny is only the 2nd Brit to ever win The Masters, joining the highly-overrated Nick Faldo in that very exclusive category. He is also the first European golfer to don the Green Jacket since Jose Maria Olazabal in 1997.
