Dallas Jesuit graduate Jordan Spieth was ever so close to becoming the youngest winner in the history of the Masters. Instead he tied for second place.
On his first trip to Augusta, the 20-year-old held his own against the likes of Bubba Watson.
He might have won the whole thing. When he walked off the seventh green he had a two shot lead. But in the end, he played the last 11 holes at three over par.
Spieth said he's just looking forward to getting back there and doing even better next year.
"That's what's on my mind because it's tough being in this position. I worked my whole life to lead an August on Sunday and while it is early in my career, it is a stinger. I had it in my hand and just didn't quite make the puts," he said.
Spieth spent much of his young life playing at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch. During the final round of the Masters, some of his supporters got together for a watch party.
If he would have won the tournament, it would have been the first time someone has done it during their first trip since Fuzzy Zoeller did it in 1979.
