    Jordan Spieth brought his old form to the new year and had no trouble winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Sunday. Staked to a five-shot lead, Spieth made two straight birdies around the turn at Kapalua to restore his margin, and he spent the rest of the afternoon soaking up the views of surf and sun on Maui. The view from the top is just as stunning at the moment, not so much for those trying to catch him. Spieth made an 8-foot birdie putt to reach his target, even though he didn't need it. He closed with a...

    Jordan Spieth's caddie and former sixth-grade teacher, Michael Greller, has likely made $2 million this season. Yeah, just let that sink in.Greller's earnings would rank 39th on the PGA Tour money list, as the Big Lead's Michael Shamburger determined—not a bad deal for someone who left a stable career to gamble on the then-top-ranked amateur golfer.Based on the $50,000 starting salary for Dallas teachers, per the Dallas Morning News, it would take Greller decades to earn as much as he was estimated to have pocketed in 25 PGA Tour events with Spieth.

    ATLANTA — Jordan Spieth already has the best year in golf. He’s one round away from having the richest year in golf history. Spieth battled through a tough, rainy Saturday at the Tour Championship and overtook Henrik Stenson by one shot with a 2-under-par 68.
  • Jordan Spieth has history on his mind as he eyes a third major in 2015

    HAVEN, Wis. -- The chance at winning his third major title of 2015 ran across Jordan Spieth's mind as he walked off the 10th green. Spieth had watched Phil Mickelson torch the back nine at Whistling Straits on TV prior to his Saturday tee time. So with a par at the par-4 10th, Spieth told himself to turn it on: "I said, 'All right, it's now or never' at that point.' " Right there, Spieth saved the possibility of adding yet another major in 2015. A back-nine torching of his own -- three strokes better than Mickelson's, produced an inward...

    Spieth credits much of his success to his sister, Ellie, seven years his junior. She has a neurological disorder that puts her on the autism spectrum and she inspired her brother to set up the Jordan Spieth Family Foundation, which raises money for young people with special needs, military families, and junior golf. "Being Ellie's brother humbles me every day of my life," he says.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. – Coming into Sunday at the Masters, Jordan Spieth held a four-shot lead, and that was enough to ensure that this day would see a memorable story, one either of triumph at a young age or of gut-punch collapse. What's more, Spieth became just the fifth player – and first since 1976 – to lead the tournament wire-to-wire, something not even Tiger has managed to do in his four Masters victories.
  • Jordan Spieth breaks Floyd's 36-hole record at Masters

    DEVELOPING: Jordan Spieth set a 36-hole scoring record at the Masters on Friday. The 21-year-old Texan turned in another dazzling round, going to the weekend with a 14-under 130 total. That broke the record of 131, set by Raymond Floyd in 1976. Spieth shot a 6-under 66 in the second round, essentially blowing away everyone in the field except Charley Hoffman. He was four strokes behind and still on the course, turning in the sort of performance that would normally be good enough for the lead. Not the way Spieth was playing. He had 15 birdies and only one bogey...
