Coming into this season, Spieth had one tour victory to his name – the John Deere Classic in 2013. He has since proven that that was just the beginning.
Just like at Augusta this year, Spieth held the lead for the Masters in 2014. However, that time he lost it and finished tied for second. He still earned a sizeable $4.3 million that season, and was included in the Ryder Cup team.
He then went to Australia, where he eased to victory with an incredible final-round 63 at the Australian Open.
“In Australia, I putted incredibly well on Sunday,” he said, “and proved to myself that I could do that when I was in contention. Prior to that I struggled with those five-, six-footers or even four-footers that I needed.”
Playing in the unofficial Hero World Challenge the following week, Spieth won the competition by 10 strokes. Looking back at how often Spieth has been in contention in tour competition this season, the question was no loner if he would win, but how often he would.
