Coming off of his first win in nearly four years, Ex-Texas Longhorns golf star Jordan Spieth is on his way to Augusta to compete in golf's most prestigious tournament, the Masters. 

And with Momentum now at his back, and playing his best golf in recent memory, Spieth will look to become just the third golfer since 1960, and the fifth golfer in history to win the Masters after winning the PGA Tour event that preceded the major tournament.

Those other four golfers include Ralph Guldahl in 1939, Art Wall in 1959, Sandy Lyle in 1988, and Phil Mickelson in 2006. 

Spieth, who won his first Masters title in 2015 and has finished in the top three in the tournament on three other occasions, will begin the quest for his second win at Augusta in the day's final grouping at 1 PM central time alongside Cameron Smith and Collin Morikawa.

Spieth will also be joined at Augusta by fellow former Longhorns Scottie Scheffler and Dylan Frittelli, each of whom has been playing well in recent weeks.
