Spieth Says Autistic Sister is Key Inspiration

He might have just won one of sport's most prestigious events, but it wasn't long before Jordan Spieth's thoughts turned to his autistic sister in the glow of victory.
The 21-year-old equalled Tiger Woods' 1997 record winning score of 18 under par to realise his childhood ambitions of donning the green jacket on Sunday after he swept through the field to become Masters champion at Augusta.
An ice-cool display made him the second-youngest winner -- behind only Woods, who was 155 days younger that year -- and just the fifth man to have led from start to finish over the tournament's four days.
Spieth told CNN's Don Riddell in the aftermath of his triumph as he opened up about his younger sibling Ellie, who was not able to attend the tournament, "I miss her a lot, and I wish she could have been here."
