Jordan Spieth holes bunker shot to extend his lead at the Masters

If you're looking for a reason to think Jordan Spieth could really become the youngest winner of the Masters ever, it might have come on the par-3 4th hole.

Spieth, who birdied the par-5 second hole but had struggled to find the fairway early in his final round, hit his tee shot on the par-3 4th hole in the front bunker and had a tough shot to get it up and down and save par.

The youngster just needed the "up" part of that, holing the shot for an unexpected birdie and an extended Masters lead. It was one of those shots we tend to see on the final day of the Masters, and the sort of birdie that could propel him to his first ever major championship.

Spieth, at just 20-years-old, is trying to become the youngest Masters champion ever, and after coming into Sunday tied at the top with Bubba Watson, has extended his lead thanks to shots like this one.

Follow the leaderboard right here for the remainder of the day, as we get set to crown a new Masters champion in just a few hours.
