Golf News

Jordan Spieth shot a course-record 8-under 63 Sunday to leave the chasing pack behind at The Australian Golf Club and win the Emirates Australian Open by six shots.

“It’s the best round I have ever played, especially considering the conditions,” Spieth told the Associated Press. “It was just kind of one of those rounds when you’re in the zone and you’re not sure what you’re at. It’s nice that it came on a Sunday.

“Being able to spread out from the field was a pretty awesome experience. I didn’t think the round was out there but the putts just kept going in. Boy, we had a good time out there today.”

Spieth finished 13 under in Sydney but entered Sunday’s final round tied for the lead at 5 under with Australians Greg Chalmers and Brett Rumford.

Spieth, 21, shot the best round of the day by four strokes, going bogey-free for his second professional win. He became the first American to win the event since Brad Faxon in 1993. 63 was good enough for the a course record and It was being played as a par 71 for the first time in a professional event.
