JORDAN SPIETH | DANNY WILLETT | THE MASTERS

Jordan Spieth has called claims that he lost the Masters rather than Danny Willett winning it as ‘absolute bull’.


The 22-year-old held a five-shot lead at the turn on the final day at Augusta National before losing out as the Englishman captured his maiden major title.

And, playing for the first time since the Masters at the Players Championship this week, Spieth revealed just how tough the aftermath was, as well as the annoyance he has that many people have tried to take the win away from Willett.

“I don't wish it upon any of y'all,” said Jordan Spieth. “I know the feelings that Danny was experiencing. You know, I was obviously very happy for him, and he 100% earned his Masters win.

“It really bugs me when people are trying to take that away from him or shoot it down, and the questions have been asked to him, do you think this will go down as you winning or him losing, and that's absolute bull, because he won and he earned it.

“But yeah, the hour-and-a-half that followed the finish, I obviously knew that that was going to happen when I was teeing off on the 18th tee box, so I had that entire hole to play and the time after to kind of figure out my emotions.

“It was tough, but we went about it the right way, and just like two years ago, when I watched Bubba get the jacket on the 18th green, it's motivation for next year.”
