McIlroy: I couldn’t shoot Spieth’s Aussie Open 63 in 100 tries


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.

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