What a week for Jordan Spieth, wire-to-wire winner of the 79th Masters Tournament. His performance was not only impressive, it was historic, too. Here's a look at some of the records he set or tied en route to slipping on the green jacket on Sunday:

• 18-under-total tied the lowest 72-hole score in Masters history (Tiger Woods shot 18 under in the 1997 Masters)

• 2nd-youngest Masters champion of all-time at 21 years, 8 months and 17 days old (Woods was 21 years, 3 months and 14 days when he won the 1997 Masters)

• 2nd since 1900 to win a major wire-to-wire (no ties) at 21 or younger (Walter Hagen was 16 days younger than Spieth when he won the 1914 U.S. Open)

• Spieth's 28 birdies for the week were three more than anyone in Masters history (Phil Mickelson had 25 in 2001)

• First wire-to-wire Masters winner since Raymond Floyd in 1976 and fifth of all-time

• First to win the year after runner-up finish since Ben Crenshaw in 1985

• Spieth's last four finishes: Win, 2nd, T-2, Win

• Moves to 2nd in OWGR, youngest to top-2 since Woods

• Second since 1940 with 3 PGA Tour wins and a major at age 21 or younger (Woods)
