Jordan Spieth’s first bogey of the day left him one stroke shy of tying the course record shared by Nick Price and Greg Norman.

Spieth shot an 8-under 64 in the final round and finished at 13 under, two shots behind leader Patrick Reed. Spieth made a bogey on the par-4 18th after hitting a tree branch off the tee and then missing a 10-foot par putt.

Price shot a 9-under 63 in 1986, a mark matched 10 years later by Norman.

Spieth looked like he would join them until his tee shot caught a branch and dropped well short of the fairway.

Still, Spieth became the seventh player in Masters history to shoot a 64 in the final round.
