JORDAN SPIETH | THE MASTERS

If you were in any doubt as to how highly regarded Jordan Spieth is among his PGA Tour peers, you only needed to look at the support he received on Twitter following his Masters collapse.


The 22-year-old surrendered a five-shot lead with nine holes to play at Augusta as Danny Willett sealed his maiden major win and while most fans were in disbelief at Spieth losing it, there were plenty of players rushing to support him as he completed his round and then looked shell-shocked when awarding the Green Jacket to the Englishman.

Speaking to the Golf Channel, Willett dismissed the notion that the presentation was awkward, saying: "No, Jordan's a classy guy. He shook my hand, looked me in the eyes and said 'well played, great Sunday'. He's going to win many more majors, many more Green Jackets and for him to be able to do that just proves how good a guy he really is."

The Masters - Final Round

Six-time Masters winner Jack Nicklaus offered his thoughts through Twitter, saying: “I think the whole golfing world feels for Jordan Spieth. He had a chance to do something truly special and something very few have done before – and be the youngest to accomplish that – and he just didn’t pull through.

“My heart goes out to him for what happened, but I know that Jordan is a young man who will certainly learn from this experience and there will be some good that comes out of this for him. He’s a wonderful talent and a wonderful young man.”

And there were many more PGA Tour stars who backed the 22-year-old, whose last five major starts have been: 1, 1, T4, 2, T2.
