There's much to marvel at with Jordan Spieth's 2-major, 5-win, Vardon Trophy-winning, No. 1 ranked, $12 million (plus $10 million) 2015.
That's the metaphor Steve DiMeglio of USA Today rode like Victor Espinoza.
With dreary skies above and a saturated East Lake Golf Club below, Jordan Spieth capped a watershed season on Sunday by winning The Tour Championship by Coca-Cola and the FedExCup.
Doug Ferguson on Spieth's 2015 Tour Championship win encapsulating Spieth's approach to the majors and a year so epic, that after his performanec he's now capable of enshrinment in the World Golf Hall Of Fame without another shot played.
After all, how do you top no finish outside the top 4 in a major? Oh yes, there is a Olympic gold medal option in 2016.
Anyway, from Ferguson's story on Spieth arriving to the putting green three hours before play started:
“Early grind,” caddie Michael Greller said.
They only do that at the majors, and Spieth approached the Tour Championship that way. Ultimately, that’s what finished off his big year.
“This is incredible,” Spieth said. “This is an event where we approached it like a major championship. I didn’t have a great playoff, but I put a lot into this week. Mentally, I stayed in it, and boy, that putter sure paid off.”
His peers were very complimentary on Twitter, as you'd expect.
Spieth tells Bob Harig that last year’s Ryder Cup was the key to his 2015. Hitting shots under pressure, for those of you taking notes at home.
