WATCH: Jordan Spieth’s trick shot at The Masters walks on water

Posted April 10th, 2019

If you’re at the traditional Wednesday Par 3 tournament at The Masters, why not have some fun?

Former Texas golfer Jordan Spieth wowed the crowd Wednesday with perhaps one of the shots of day. Standing on the edge of the water right near the tee box, he brought out an iron and ran his ball across the lake and onto the green — inside 15 feet from the cup.

Spieth has always fared well at golf’s first major on the calendar. In his first three years, he finished second twice and won the tournament in 2015. After a career-low 11th place finish in 2017, he placed third last year with a 274 (13-under), two shots short of winner Patrick Reed’s number. The Texas ex will start his 2019 tournament run in the last group to tee off Thursday at 1 p.m. with Paul Casey and Brooks Koepka.
