Jordan Spieth vows to show even more improvement at next Masters
At 20 years of age, Jordan Spieth is showing world class potential. After coming agonisingly close to winning the Masters on his debut and eventually having to share second place behind Bubba Watson, it would have been easy for the American to simply use his inexperience and age as a factor for his defeat.
However, when the cameras were turned onto him after dropping three shots in five holes, Spieth did not resort to harping out the usual tropes. Instead he vowed to come back next year better than ever.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "I think that was the best week I've ever had patience-wise, I think that was the key to success.
"Ultimately it stings because I had it to eight-under and felt very comfortable sitting on a par-five ready to push forward.
"But it wasn't my day today and obviously the way Bubba played it was going to be very difficult to beat him anyway. I'm very happy for him, and I can't wait to be back.
"I think this has been more valuable even than if I had won. I can take so much from this experience, one that I've never had before.
"I had never felt the way I felt this entire round in terms of nerves and pressure, and it was really cool to hole a couple of putts early and I just wish I could have held it together.”
