Jordan Spieth makes history at Augusta National that no one wants to see.

A long time ago, Jordan Spieth was a rising star on the PGA Tour. He had just turned 21 and won his first major title. He was the youngest person to ever win The Masters.

Jordan Spieth makes history at Augusta National that no one wants to see.

He made some new history at Augusta National on Friday morning. He would rather not be connected with that group, which is a shame.

Spieth made four bogeys on the par-5 15th hole. From what Justin Ray of The Athletic says, he became the first player in 20 years to score multiple nines or worse at 15.

That number was on his card in the first round of the 2021 Masters.

His tee shot and second shot were both good, and his third shot went over the green. He had to make a dangerous chip back down the steeply sloped green.

Spieth caught his ball thin and watched it roll past the hole and into the water.

Once he was done with his drop, he flew the green into almost the same spot as before. He putted from three feet this time instead of using the wedge, making a quad nine.

When the three-time major winner woke up to finish his first round, he hoped to get into the 11s. He shot a 7-over 79 instead, which puts him 14 shots behind Bryson DeChambeau.

There were many years when Spieth was the most reliable player at Augusta.

Through 2014–2018, he got a T2, 1, T2, T11, and a third-place finish.

But his trips to Georgia have been much less smooth in recent years. He tied for 46th place in 2020 and finished T21 the next year. In 2021, he finished third again. He didn’t make the cut at all last year, and he’s almost certain to miss it again this year.
