All the performance stats from the 2015 US Masters are in and I've had a chance to distill them down.  

First lets looks at the Champion Jordan Spieth and how he figured in the Major stats categories.

Fairways Hit: 39 (T20)
Driving Distance: 285 yards (52nd)
Greens In Regulation: Hit 54 (T2)
Putting: Average 27.0 putts per round, 108 total putts (3rd)
Par 3's: -3; Par 4's: -3; Par 5's: -12

Again a great greens in regulation performance was needed to win the Masters, and Spieth kept up the tradition of heavy par-5 scoring with -12 out of a possible -16.

Ryan Moore and Kevin Streelman took the honors for straightest batters in Augusta, while Jason Day was a mile (aka 7.5 yards) ahead of the next longest off the tee with an incredible 326 yard average.

Ian Poulter tied sixth in the tournament after a phenomenal weekend of two 67's and was far an away the best greens in regulation player in the field.  Watch out for Poults over the coming weeks and put him on your shortlist for next years Masters!

Here are the top-5 in each stat.
