Happy New Year, Jordan
Jordan Spieth went on Twitter in the final hour of 2015 to say, “Would rather this year not end.” Maybe it never did. Coming off a blockbuster year including the Masters, U.S. Open, five victories and the FedEx Cup, Spieth delivered a statement Sunday in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions by crushing the winners-only field at Kapalua for an eight-shot victory. “I felt like it was a short threeweek break and continue what we were doing last year,” he said. “That’s the way I’ll keep on thinking about it. It worked well this week. All parts were firing.” He made an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 6-under 67 and a spot in the PGA Tour record book with Ernie Els as the only two players at 30-under par or lower in a 72-hole event. Spieth finished at 30under 262, one short of the record Els set at Kapalua in 2003.
