Heading into the new decade, there is a lot to expect in the world of golf. Tiger Woods completed one of the greatest comeback stories in Sport to become the Masters champion, proving to the world that his time at the top is not over. Gary Woodland and Shane Lowry grabbed their first major trophy with victory in the US Open and The Open Championship respectively. Both players have announced themselves to the world of golf and there is much to expect in the next few years. However, there is one person in the last decade that truly established himself as one of the biggest names in the world of gold – Jordan Spieth.
Born in Dallas, Texas on the 27th of July 1993, 2013 was the breakout year for Spieth. He competed in 23 PGA events in 2013 and placed in the top 2 twice.
His parents Shawn Spieth and Mary Christine sent young Jordan to St. Monica Catholic School. He learned golf at an early age at the Brookhaven Country Club.
According to Celebrity Net Worth reports, Jordan Spieth is worth an estimated value of $100 million. This is a huge sum considering he is just 25 years of age and hasn’t recorded any major victory since 2017.
According to Forbes, he earned about $41 million in the 2017-18 season through his winnings but mostly through his sponsorship deals.
He is married to Annie Verret, and his professional career victories total 14. He also topped the golf ranking for 26 weeks in 2015. He has won 3 major championships, the Masters Tournament, the US Open, and The Open Championship. He came closest to achieving the career grand slam when he finished 2nd at the PGA Championship in 2015.
