Who Wins The 2014 Masters?


The final round of the 2014 Masters is set, and we wonder who you think sports the green jacket as the sun sets on golf’s first major of the year.

PGA.com sets the stage…

Even without golf’s biggest star, this suddenly is shaping up as a Masters for the ages. 

Jordan Spieth, playing a brand of big-time golf that belies his 20 years, kept his cool amid the chaos of Saturday at Augusta National. He was too busy trying to handle a lightning-fast golf course to even look at a leaderboard until he couldn’t avoid them over the closing holes of a wild round. 

His name at the top with Bubba Watson was compelling enough. 

It’s been 83 years since a player this young won a major, and 35 years since anyone won the Masters on his first try.

The only mention of Tiger Woods, absent from Augusta National for the first time in 20 years, was whether Spieth could replace him as the youngest Masters champion. 

“For a 20-year-old, he’s pretty savvy. Not much bothers him,” said Fred Couples, who picked Spieth for the Presidents Cup. “Tomorrow obviously is going to be a really, really hard day to try to win this. But he’s well qualified to do it.” 

Spieth managed one last par from the deep fairway bunker on the 18th hole for a 2-under 70. In his first Masters, he has broken par all three rounds. 

That gave him a share of the lead with Watson, whose five bogeys in a round of 74 brought so many players back into the mix. Watson had a three-shot lead at the start of the third round. When he walked off the 18th green with a par, nine players were separated by three shots. 

Spieth and Watson were at 5-under 211.
