Jordan Spieth had a full-blown meltdown on the 15th hole at Augusta National in his opening round, making a quadruple bogey on the par five. 

Spieth, 30, will have a lot of work to do in order to make the cut this week. After his first round, the American is tied for 84th at seven over.

In a rare occurrence, Spieth has become the first player in two decades to card multiple quadruple bogeys on the 15th hole.

He carded his first nine in the opening round of the 2017 Masters.

So what happened?

Having found the left rough with his tee shot, Spieth then decided to lay up on the 550-yard par five, leaving his second shot short of the water in front of the green.

He then airmailed the green with his third shot, and that was the beginning of the end for the three-time major champion. 

At first glance, Spieth's fourth shot looked good, but once it landed on the glass-like green, the notoriously slick slopes ushered the ball off the front of the green.

For a moment, it appeared that the ball might cling on in the rough, but alas, it continued its journey to a watery grave. 

From there, he made the bizarre decision to drop on the other side of the water hazard and proceeded to once again send his approach long of the green, leaving himself with another tricky shot to try and limit the damage.

A feeble putt from the rough just about made it onto the green, and from there, he needed an additional two putts to finish up.

Undoubtedly disheartened, Spieth then went on to make two pars and a bogey to finish his round, eventually carding a seven over 79.

Spieth will have to produce some serious magic in the second round if he's to have any chance of making it to the weekend.
