Jordan Spieth became the first American in 21 years to win the Australian Open on Sunday , doing so in style with a final-round 63 that was a tournament best by two shots.
After Spieth’s six-shot win in windy conditions at The Australian Golf Club, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, whose Saturday struggles undid his chances a repeat, shared his amazement at what the Texan accomplished.
You could give me another 100 rounds today at The Australian and I wouldn't sniff 63…. Well done @JordanSpieth very impressive!

Don’t be so modest, Rory. You did shoot a record-tying 63 in the 2010 Open Championship.
