Jordan Spieth says he is relishing a potential Major rivalry with world number one Rory McIlroy in the coming years after winning the 2015 US Masters.
Newly-crowned Masters champion Spieth was speaking after clinching his first Major title in style on Sunday.
The 21-year-old American finished four shots ahead of Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson on 18-under par at the Augusta National.
And Spieth now hopes to be able to challenge on a regular basis, with McIlroy the man currently at the pinnacle of the game.
"He's got four Majors, something I can only dream about," Spieth said of McIlroy.
"I look forward to getting in the heat of the moment with him a few more times in the near future."
McIlroy was pleased with how he finished off at Augusta, shooting a superb final round 66 to finish in fourth place on 12-under par.
He told reporters: "If someone had told me I would finish 12-under at the start of the week I would have taken it and sat back and seen where I finished.
"I played well and am very happy with how the weekend went and the last nine holes on Friday when I needed to make the cut. I am going to take a lot of positives."
Meanwhile, both Rose and Mickelson were content with their efforts, feeling that their totals of 14-under par would have been good enough to win at Augusta most years.
Former US Open champion Rose said: "Fourteen under round here, I'd take that every year and take my chances."
Three-time Green Jacket winner Mickelson added: "I played some great golf, but I just got outplayed. I would have taken 14-under at the start of the week and thought that would have won it."
