Seeking to become just the fourth player – after Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods – to win back-to-back titles at Augusta National, the 22-year-old Texan birdied the third, sixth and eighth to get to three-under approaching the turn.

Spieth is part of a trio of new generation favorites alongside Jason Day and Rory McIlroy who were under threat from a bunch of hardened former champions.
