Spieth wins by record 10 shots at Isleworth
WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) Jordan Spieth won the Hero World Challenge with a performance that tournament host Tiger Woods could appreciate.
Staked to a seven-shot lead, Spieth blew away an elite field at Isleworth and set two tournaments records Sunday when he closed with a 6-under 66 for a 10-shot victory over Henrik Stenson.
It was the second straight runaway victory for the 21-year-old from Texas. Spieth won the Australian Open last week by six shots.
He finished at 26-under 262, breaking the tournament record of 266 set by Woods in 2007 and Davis Love III in 2000 at Sherwood Country Club.
His 10-shot margin broke the record that Woods set in 2007 when he won by seven shots.
Woods closed with a 72 and tied for last in the 18-man field.
