Jordan Spieth bogeyed the final hole on Sunday, but the only thing it cost him was a Masters record.

Spieth closed with a 2-under 70 to win the Masters by four strokes. The win was his first major championship title.

The 21-year-old Texan was the first to reach 19-under par at the Masters with a birdie at the 15th, but his bogey at the 18th left him at 18-under-par 270, which tied him with Tiger Woods for low 72-hole score in tournament history.

Three-time champion Phil Mickelson closed with a 3-under 69 to grab a share of second place at minus-14. Justin Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion, also bogeyed the last for a 2-under 70 and a share of second with Mickelson.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama both fired 6-under 66s to tie for the low round of the day. McIlroy, who was looking to complete the career grand slam, ended alone in fourth at 12-under-par 276.
