Jordan Spieth (-18) ties Tiger's scoring record, wins 2015 Masters

The Kid is king.

Jordan Spieth won the 2015 Masters on Sunday with a 2-under 70 and tied a new Masters scoring record in the process at 18-under 270. He beat Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson by four.

Spieth went out in 35 and made birdie at Nos. 1, 2, and 8.

Then he made a record-setting birdie putt at No. 10. It was his 26th birdie of the Masters, breaking Phil Mickelson's record of 25 from back in 2001.

Then Spieth shut things down on the second nine by boldly going for the par-5 greens in two at Nos. 13 and 15. Both ended in birdie for the Texas titan.

Here's the man-sized shot on No. 13.

Hey, you don't win the Masters by laying up. 

You also don't win the Masters, apparently, without setting several records. The 21-year-old is taking a whole fistful back to Dallas with him after his performance this week.

• At 18-under 270, Spieth tied Tiger Woods' record of 18-under 270 from back in 1997.

• Spieth becomes the first wire-to-wire Masters winner since Raymond Floyd in 1976.

Set the 54-hole scoring record (200).

• Set the 36-hole scoring record (130).

Is the second-youngest Masters winner ever (Tiger Woods in 1997).

• The youngest 18-hole leader in Masters history.

• Most birdies ever (28)

Here's a closer look:

It was as dominating a performance as we've ever seen in this tournament and probably in golf history. It was a show. A theater of greatness. Maybe the best Masters performance ever.

The kid is the king.
