Records tumble as Jordan Spieth clinches first Masters Title
21-year-old American Jordan tied the record of the lowest 18-hole score at the Masters. Spieth had previously broken the record of the lowest 36-hole score on Friday. The record was set by Raymond Floyd back in 1976.
Here is what Jordan Spieth had to say via his twitter account.
Well.. I'm glad that wasn't a dream

A commendable performance from Anirban Lahiri
In spite of a disappointing finish towards the end, Lahiri has achieved what no Indian has done. Here is what the 27-year-old Indian had to say.
“It was as if the ball was dodging the hole or vice-versa and I just could not make it happen. I missed at least a couple of four-footers for birdie and maybe another four-odd putts inside 10 feet, so it was a frustrating round in many senses. I knew a score around in the 60s was possible and it would help me move up. And after the way I played off the tee and with iron shots, the score at worst should have been 68, but it was not to be. I was happy to make the cut in my first Masters, just as I had done in my first Open in 2012. But I would have wanted to do well and it (was) possible after looking at my other parts of the game. I am learning with each round and that is what my biggest takeaway is going to be. Sure I would have loved to move up, score better, but if not, at least let me learn for future trips to Augusta. I am hoping to make the best of all chances and opportunities I am getting at this stage and this will (help) me grow.”
