Jordan Spieth is Off to the Best Masters Start of All-Time

Masters 2016: Who We're Buying and Selling
During the GOLF.com Live From Augusta round one recap, Ryan Asselta, Jeff Ritter and Alan Shipnuck discuss who they're loving and leaving at the 2016 Masters.

In his nine career rounds at Augusta National, Jordan Spieth has never shot a round over par. Even more staggering is how his cumulative score stacks up in relation to par compared with the first nine rounds of other Masters champions. Spieth is 29 under in his nine rounds. Only two other players are even under par in their first nine rounds (Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson). Jack Nicklaus, a guy who knows a thing or two about Augusta National, was 10 over in his first nine rounds and went on to win six green jackets. We'd say Spieth is off to a good start.
