Olesen had only played 13 majors before this week, but was ninth in the Open in 2012 and finished sixth on his Masters debut the following year. "I burned a lot of edges".

"I felt bad about it", Koepka said, although he had not shouted the traditional warning of "fore" following his drive.

Spieth had insisted on Wednesday that he had no "burning desire" to surpass Woods as the youngest grand slam victor and was "freerolling" this week, but added: "I don't think I was as freerolling as I thought I would be, as you can tell by some frustration".
