At a time when Tiger Woods, one of the best golfers of our time is hogging the limelight for all the wrong reasons, Jordan Spieth is all set to give his best at the US Open. There is no denying that he is the best of the lot, as Tiger Woods slowly, but certainly fades from the limelight.
While Tiger Woods may still be the richest golfers in the world with a staggering net worth of around $750 million, when it comes to the game, there are others who have certainly beaten him completely. His high net worth right now is certainly not due to his golf geniuses but due to his star power due to his exceptional exploits on gold courses in the past.
Though it is rather very tough to predict exact net worth of Jordan Spieth, but we know for sure that it is around $70 million. Like every major golfer, most of his earnings come from his endorsements, which include Under Armour, AT&T, Coca-Cola and Rolex. It’s estimated he’s grossed close to $150 million so far, but then things such as taxes, caddie and employee payroll, and other general expenses come into play. One smart move Spieth has made was to continue to call Texas his home. Texas doesn’t have state income tax.
The official PGA Tour website ranks him at No. 5 in the FedExCup. Considering that he is just 23 year old, it is certainly a great achievement. This year, he has played 13 events, tallying nine top-25 finishes, six top-10s, two third-place results, a second and one victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
He is doing exceptionally well this year. In the year 2015, he was No. 1 in the FedExCup rankings, hauled in a superb $12.03 million with five victories and 15 top-10 finishes in 25 events. He may be chasing those results this year, but he’s off to a strong start and will hope to use the 2017 U.S. Open as a springboard for another impressive year.
1993 born, Spieth won the U.S. Junior Amateur in 2009 and 2011, joining Tiger Woods as its only multiple winners. Before turning 18 in July 2011, he was No. 1 in the AJGA Golf Rankings, which promotes the best junior golfers in the world. He earned a spot in the U.S. Open in 2012 as an alternate after Brandt Snedeker withdrew; he tied for 21st and was the low amateur. In the year 2012, the 19-year-old Spieth turned professional. On September 27, 2013, he was named PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. At the end of the 2013 season, he was ranked 10th on the PGA Tour money list and 22nd in the Official World Golf Ranking.
There is no denying that Spieth enters the 2017 U.S. Open with one of the best odds to take down the title once again, even after his mediocre showing during the 2016 event. Interesting, he’s behind only two other players, one of which is the current defending champ in Dustin Johnson.
He is dating Annie Verret for the last several years. To be true, she has been by his side since high school. She graduated from business school at Texas Tech, she works as the Event Coordinator for a youth development organization and she is often by Spieth’s side during his biggest triumphs.
