No one in the world is playing better golf at the moment than Jordan Spieth. After a six stroke victory in last week’s Australian Open, the 21-year-old completed his demolition of Isleworth Golf & Country Club and the Hero World Challenge field, winning the 18-player event by 10 shots.

Spieth finished at 26-under 262, breaking the tournament record of 266 set by Tiger Woods in 2007 and Davis Love III in 2000 at Sherwood Country Club.

At age 21, Spieth became the youngest champion in the 16-year history of this event. Woods, who made his comeback this week from injury, won in 2001 at age 25.

The Dallas, Texas native was a runner up in this year’s Masters Tournament. Don’t be surprised if he’s donning the green jacket come April.
