Jordan Spieth Laps Field at Hero Challenge

Jordan Spieth completed his four-day domination of the talented field at the Hero World Challenge, firing a 6-under 66 to finish 26 strokes under par, winning the tournament by 10 strokes over runner-up Henrik Stenson.

Spieth’s streak of 43 straight holes without a bogey came to a halt with a double bogey on No. 14, but prior to that he had four birdies and an eagle, so it was hardly the end of the world. He proceeded to birdie 15 and 17 to balance out the gaffe, but the lead was never in jeopardy.

Spieth won $1 million in prize money.

Any wild hopes Stenson had of catching Spieth were undone in the opening moments as he bogeyed two of the first five holes.

Americans Patrick Reed and Keegan Bradley finished tied for third at 15-under, a stroke ahead of Australia’s Jason Day.

Host Tiger Woods, who was on vomit watch throughout the day, found a buddy to share last place with – Hunter Mahan tumbled to even par alongside Woods with a 3-over 75.
