Jordan Speith wins again to suggest era of dominance on the way

Published Add your comment

Jordan Spieth took centre stage in the opening 2016 event at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

The young American almost matched the PGA Tour record for total score under par with an awe-inspiring performance of 30 under-par - just one shot off equalling Ernie Els' record of 31 under for 72 holes.

The current Masters Champion's latest win meant he became the third-youngest person to reach seven PGA Tour wins.

Spieth went into the final round five shots ahead of fellow compatriot Brooks Koepka and further extended that lead with a six-under-par 67 on Sunday.

Spieth carded his lowest round of the week on the final day and still managed to produce seven birdies, which ultimately shows the form he is in - picking up where he left off last year. Spieth's current form is frightening, which begs the question of who can keep up?

Big names like Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler and Brandt Sneaker all produced some incredible golf over the weekend, but even at their best they are no match for Spieth.

Five wins last season, including the Masters and the US Open set an incredible benchmark for himself, and a win this week has given him a great start to topping last year's achievements.

"I felt like it was short three-week break and continue what we were doing last year," said Spieth after his latest triumph.

"That's the way I'll keep on thinking about it. It worked this week. All parts were firing."

The form Spieth is in, he is constantly compared to Tiger Woods at the start of his career. But although Spieth is introducing a new era of Golf, he is still a long way off trumping what Woods did for Golf.

Spieth won his seventh title in his 77th start as a pro, in comparison to Woods who only needed 38 starts to accomplish that feat and after his 77th start he acquired a total of 18 wins.

Although at the moment Spieth can not be compared to the sheer talent of Woods, he is still going to dominate the new era of Golf.
