Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler get over Masters disappointment with Spring Break blowout

Less than a week after Sergio Garcia won the first major of the year at Augusta, Americans Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler jetted off to the Bahamas as part of their own version of Spring Break.

Spieth and Fowler were both in contention going into the final day of the Masters but neither were able to keep in touch with the leaders as Garcia beat Justin Rose in a thrilling play-off.

The pair were joined in their post-Masters vacation by fellow professionals Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman in a repeat of their 2016 trip to the Baker's Bay resort.

Fowler, who finished tied for 11 at the Masters, posted pictures of the group playing golf bare-foot and topless. The foursome even have their own Snapchat filter to mark the trip. 

"We baaack. Yeah, so #sb2k17 is happening.. Follow it all on snap," Justin Thomas wrote in a post on Instagram. 

In a video posted by Smylie Kaufmann, the group simultaneously jump off from the top of a 50ft yacht.

 In a series of pictures posted to Rickie Fowler's Instagram account the four friends enjoy a round of golf with shirts or shoes.

In one post a shoeless Jordan Spieth attempts to hit a putt while Rickie Fowler looms over the hole in a bid to put the 23-year-old off.

After being paired together for their final round at Augusta, Spieth and Fowler both finished outside the top ten after being widely tipped to challenge third round joint-leaders, Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose.

“It was bizarre. It was just a little bizarre,” said Spieth, who finished outside the top two for the first time in his four appearances at Augusta. 

 "I feel bad I went so downhill while Rickie was still in it there, because it is tough when you don’t see a ball go in the hole,” he said. 

“And when I was out of it, I was his biggest cheerleader, just being a really good friends with Rickie. And it was tough.

“Yeah, I don’t think I helped him whatsoever on the round. And I felt like if I was able to hang in there and we were able to feed off each other, then we would have been able to push through like you saw Sergio and Justin able to do today. We could have definitely done that today. We’re both capable of it, the stage wasn’t too big, it just didn’t quite happen.”
