Jordan Spieth’s first tweet after Masters win: ‘Well.. I’m glad that wasn’t a dream’

Jordan Spieth understandably went on social media sabbatical during Masters week with his last tweet coming on Sunday, April 5, in which he proclaimed, “It’s Masters week.”

In the past year, the 21-year-old has transformed himself from a prodigy with seemingly limitless potential to bona fide superstar, and his historic and record-breaking dominance on the hallowed grounds of Augusta National Golf Club over four rounds proved to be the exclamatory statement that said under no uncertain terms that Spieth has fully arrived on the scene and will be an undeniable force on the PGA Tour for years to come.

After spending Sunday evening presumably celebrating his dominant performance with friends and family while allowing everything that has transpired over the past four days soak in, Spieth returned to Twitter Monday morning. It appears that the young man is still coming to terms with the magnitude of what he has just accomplished.

 

In a way, Spieth’s admission that his four days at Augusta defied even how he imagined achieving the goal he had set for himself as a 14-year-old echoed what Bubba Watson said upon his first Masters victory in 2012 after outlasting Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff.

“I’ve never had a dream go this far, so I can’t really say it’s a dream come true,” Watson said on that fateful Sunday as he donned the green jacket.

And now, for Jordan Spieth, his remarkable performance means his teenage dream has been realized — sooner perhaps than many outside himself arguably even expected. And waking up to realize it’s not a dream but reality had to feel pretty darn good.
