Masters 2014: Jordan Spieth fades after taking lead, still ties for second in first appearance
Question of the Day
Watson closed with a 69 for an 8-under 280 total.
Blixt, also a Masters rookie, shot 71 for the third day in a row but couldn’t sink enough putts to make a serious run.
“I just didn’t get the approaches as close as I wanted,” Blixt said. “I did not give myself enough opportunities to make birdies.”
No Swedish man has ever won a major, and Blixt is certainly mindful of that drought.
“I’d love to be the first one,” he said. “I hope that curse can end soon. I will do as much as I can and work hard as I can to end it.”
Spieth is eager to get back to work, too.
While he figures to have plenty of opportunities to get a major title of his own, this one felt like an opportunity squandered.
“I accomplished one of my goals this year: get in contention at a major and see how I can do,” Spieth said. “Hopefully going forward, I can do that again. I’ve still got three more this year.”
