“To say that Jordan Spieth’s career is something quite remarkable, would be the understatement of the century. His winnings last year alone totaled $23 million – not bad for a 22-year-old. But there’s no obnoxious athlete ego here.”
Jordan Spieth is one of the youngest and most successful pro golfers of our time. But there are few things about Jordan Spieth many don’t know.
Jordan Spieth believes in God. And if you meet him in person, you’ll quickly realize that despite his great success — he remains very humble.
But Spieth doesn’t claim to be a perfect Christian. In a recent interview, the second-youngest man to ever win the Masters shared that he desperately needs Christ, and thanks his family for keeping him grounded.
Last year, Americans fell in love with the 22-year-old golfer hailing from the good ole’ state of Texas. In 2015, Spieth placed first in the Official World Golf Ranking, tied the 72-hole record set by Tiger Woods in 1997, and became the second youngest to win the Masters, behind Woods. He then won the U.S. Open with a final score of 5 under par.

Jordan Spieth was born on July 27, 1993, and raised in Dallas, TX, alongside his two younger siblings, Steven and Ellie.
Little Jordan Spieth got into golf when his mom bought him plastic clubs as a toddler so he could occupy himself, while his younger brother could be looked after without distraction.
Growing up, baseball was Spieth’s first love. A left-handed pitcher, he gave it up at age 12 to focus on golf, and he quickly became one of the most impressive junior players.
