Jordan Spieth Lands on Sports Illustrated Cover After Masters Win

April 14, 2015

The accolades for Jordan Spieth keep coming. He can now add a Sports Illustrated cover to the list. 

After winning the 2015 Masters in record-setting form, Spieth finds himself on the national cover of SI in a similar shot to Tiger Woods’ cover from 2001.

The 21-year-old Spieth tied the Masters 72-hole scoring mark at 18-under, was the second-youngest Masters champion in history and only the fifth wire-to-wire champion.

“It’s incredible,” Spieth said moments after the final putt dropped. “It’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever felt. This was arguably the greatest day of my life. And to join the club that is the green jackets and to join Masters history and put my name on that trophy and to have this jacket forever, it something that I can’t fathom right now.”

Spieth is the first golfer on the cover of Sports Illustrated since Rory McIlroy won the 2014 British Open.
