Who is Jordan Spieth?

He is a three-time major winner, but who is Jordan Spieth? Find out more about the American with our player profile here…

 

Born in 1993, Jordan Spieth has gone on to become one of the PGA Tour’s stars in recent years, notching a number of tournament victories, including three major titles.

Spieth made his name on the PGA Tour two weeks before his 20th birthday when he won the John Deere Classic. He defeated Zach Johnson and David Hearn in a five-hole playoff, becoming the first teenager to win on the Tour since 1931.

Spieth has gone on to win 16 times during his professional career, including three major victories. The first of those came at the Masters Tournament in 2015, where he became the first wire-to-wire winner at Augusta National in almost 40 years. He also won the US Open two months later, before lifting the Claret Jug in 2017 for his third major crown. The PGA Championship is the only major that Spieth needs to complete the Grand Slam, an event where he finished runner-up in 2015.

Spieth has also enjoyed success on the team stage, as part of a formidable partnership with close friend Justin Thomas. He has played in five Ryder Cups, winning twice, and has been on the winning side in all four of his Presidents Cup appearances.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
