Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth earned his second consecutive runaway victory with a closing six-under-par 66 to win the Hero World Challenge by a decisive 10 strokes. The 21-year-old finished with a 26-under-par 262 victory total to shatter the tournament record by four shots.
Spieth, who plays a full bag of Titleist equipment, has been playing the new Titleist Pro V1x prototype golf ball and 915 driver since the WGC-HSBC Champions and the change has been paying dividends ever since.
"This is the best that I've played in my life...And I got to say the same thing last week in a media tent in Australia," said Spieth.
Heading into the final round with a 7-shot lead, Spieth opened with three birdies in four holes to help open an 11 shot lead with nine holes to play. Spieth made sure to enjoy the home stretch.
"It was the most fun I ever had playing nine holes of golf," said Spieth.
The back-to-back wins moved Spieth into the Top 10 of the official world golf rankings, capping off a successful year in which Spieth achieved his goals.
"Inside we were really very pleased with the year and how it came to a close...I wanted to win multiple times this year and I did. This caps off the best golfing year that I've ever had."
Congratulations on your fantastic play, Jordan! See you in 2015.
