Jordan Spieth holes out from the bunker, increases Masters lead

Rob Carr

Sometimes things just go your way and if the early going is any indication, things will go Jordan Spieth's way on Sunday at Augusta National.

Jordan Spieth got off to a good start at Augusta National, notching a birdie on the second hole. He appeared to be in trouble at the very difficult fourth hole, however, after his tee shot found the greenside bunker. The best players would be challenged to save par from that spot, but Spieth did one better, holing his shot for a birdie.

The shot brought back memories to The John Deere Classic where Spieth holed out from a bunker and went on to win for the first time as a pro. A few more shots like that on Sunday and Spieth may have a new addition to his closet in a few hours.
