2008

He finished second in the 2008 and 2009 Junior PGA Championship

2003

His score of −30 was not only a personal best, it was also only the second time a player reached −30 in a 72-hole PGA Tour event, after Ernie Els achieved the feat in 2003 at the same event

2002

Open in the same year, and the first since Tiger Woods in 2002

During the final round Spieth briefly held a score of −19 but bogeyed the final hole resulting in him tying Tiger Woods' 1997 score record at 18-under

Johnson then had an eagle putt to win the tournament outright on the 72nd hole, but three-putted from 12 feet to finish one stroke behind

1969

Spieth finished with a final round 69 — three strokes clear of Kuchar, who also carded a 69 – and became just the second player in history after Jack Nicklaus to win three of the four men's golf majors before his 24th birthday

1967

Following a near two-month break, Spieth headed to Australia looking for a third Australian Open title in four years, but was never really in contention to defend his title, although a final round 67 (his best round of the tournament) meant he finished in 8th
