Jordan Spieth didn’t look at a leaderboard once during his historic Sunday round

Published

That’s right, folks, during Jordan Spieth’s majestic 16-hole stretch to begin his Masters final round, Jordan Spieth didn’t turn his gaze toward any of Augusta National’s iconic white leaderboards. Not once.

“Honest to God, I didn’t look once today,” he said. “I’m nine back. Go out and just have fun, don’t worry about the golf tournament itself, worry about playing Augusta National. I heard roars. I knew somebody was playing well.”

“With eight people ahead of me starting the day,” Spieth added, “to get that much help and shoot a fantastic round was nearly impossible. But I almost pulled off the impossible. I had no idea. When I finished on 18 and (finally) looked at the board, I could have been in the lead by two and I could have been down four – and neither one would have surprised me.”

Spieth poured in nine birdies in his quest to both catch Patrick Reed and card the lowest score (63) in Sunday Masters history.

The Texan was nine strokes back of Patrick Reed when he teed off. When Spieth rolled in his right-to-left birdie putt at the 16th hole, he briefly tied Reed. After nearly making his 18-foot effort at the 17th hole, a penciling in a disappointing bogey at the 18th hole, Spieth signed for a final-round 64. He finished at 13 under, two strokes behind Patrick Reed and one stroke behind Rickie Fowler.

His Masters resume now looks like this: T2, 1, T2, T11, 3.

What’s more unfathomable, GolfWRX members: shooting 64 on Sunday at the Masters, or having the discipline to never look at a leaderboard? Obviously the former, but the latter is pretty incredible too.

Published

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.

WATCH: Is this the craziest hole-in-one you’ve ever seen?

Published

on

Golfers often say that getting a hole-in-one is all luck. (Keep in mind that Tiger Woods, arguably one of the most skilled iron players ever, says he has 19 holes-in-one… so maybe not all luck.) But certainly there are some holes-in-one that are “luckier” than others.

And then there’s this shot by Eddie Pepperell at the 2018 British Masters…

Definitely a great shot, and he absolutely took dead aim, but how this golf ball found the bottom of the cup is mind-blowing. It seemed to bounce off the ground, go up the flagstick, hit the ground, then side hop itself right into the basket. Wow.

But is it crazier than the bank shot?

That one is hard to top.

Or how about the all-time classic Bugs-Bunny-assisted hole-in-one by Michael Jordan in Space Jam?

Looney Tunes aside, here’s what Pepperell had to say about his hole-in-one.

He may not have seen what happened at the time, but he’ll see it on highlight reels for years to come.
