2016 US Masters
The 216 US Masters was the 80th edition of the famous tournament at Augusta, Georgia, and it witnessed one of the biggest collapses in golf history as Jordan Spieth had led by a five shots going into the back-nine on the Sunday but he was eclipsed by Danny Willett, who shot a bogey-free 67 to become the first Englishman to win the Masters since Nick Faldo in 1996.
Defending champion Jordan Spieth might an ominous start with an opening 66 to finish the day on six-under, two clear of Danny Lee and Shane Lowry. However, Ernie Els made a record-worst nine on the first hole!
Spieth had led by five shots at one point on Day Two but he eventually had to settle for a one shot advantage over Rory McIlroy at the close of play, albeit gusting winds ensured that scoring was difficult. Tom Watson missed the cut in what was his 43rd and final Masters appearance.
Spieth continued to head the leaderboard and he set a new record by holding the Masters lead for a seventh consecutive round. The American was one shot clear of Smylie Kauffman at the close.
Spieth endured a quite horrendous collapse in the final round as he blew a five--shot lead with nine holes left to play and that let in Danny Willett, who romped to his first ever major win. A final round 67 from the Englishman ensured he finished three shots clear of Spieth and Lee Westwood.
