Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods (-18)

The American duo previously held the record of having the lowest scoring cards at the Masters.

Spieth’s impressive display in the 2015 tournament saw him secure his first major.

He pipped Justin Rose to the title on the final day as the Englishman’s superb -14 wasn’t enough to bag him a green jacket.

Tiger Woods also shot an extraordinary -18 to secure the championship back in 1997.

It too was Woods’ first victory at a major championship and he finished as a clear winner, 12 strokes ahead of runner up Tom Kite.

Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd (-17)

The legendary Jack Nicklaus won the 1965 Masters with a remarkable 17 under par.

The victory saw the 25-year-old Nicklaus claim his second Masters title, he would go on to win six overall.

It would be 11 years until Nicklaus’ record is matched as Raymond Floyd joined him in the 17 under club.

In 1976, Floyd shot a 131 (-13) over the first two rounds and then posted two rounds of 70 on the weekend.

Phil Mickleson and Tiger Woods (-16)

Just four years after his record breaking win, Woods was back to claim victory at the 2001 Masters with a score of -16.

This win saw the American claim all four major titles as he won the U.S Open, the Open Championship and the PGA Championship in 2000; a feat that was later dubbed the “Tiger Slam.”

In 2010, the ever present Phil Mickleson joined Woods in shooting a -16 in Augusta and saw him accomplish his third Masters title.
