Spieth’s Leap to the Top

As most of you probably already know, the 22 year old Jordan Spieth has had an extremely successful career in just a few short seasons. Beginning his career at the University of Texas at Austin, Jordan Spieth realized the extent of his talents and packed his bags in a dart for the PGA after just one year at Texas. As quickly as Jordan found success in the NCAA he found the true extent of his abilities in the 2015 PGA season.

2015 was a tremendous year for both Jordan Spieth and golf viewers across the globe. Although Jordan started his career with a level of success that only some could have dreamed of, his true talent was realized worldwide at the 2015 Masters tournament in Augusta. After a phenomenal three day lead, Jordan closed the deal on Sunday at the 2015 Masters and joined the elitist club of Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, and a multitude of other incredible athletes while wearing the infamous green jacket.

Upon winning the Masters, Jordan was also able to capture the Tour Championship, completing the season with $12 million in prize money. If the successes previously mentioned were not enough to convince you of his success, Spieth also captured the FedEx Cup, which earned him an additional $10 million. In finishing the 2015 season at the tender age of 22 years old, Jordan became the wealthiest golfer in the game, accumulating a larger net worth than even the great Tiger Woods. While becoming the youngest winner of the masters and the wealthiest golfer in the game, Jordan also became the youngest golfer to win the FedEx Cup since 1929, PGA Tour player of the year, and the number 1 spot on the leaderboard.
