My Dad told me growing up, “You’ve got to start setting goals.” That’s been my philosophy, set goals and work hard, stay focused, and reach them as soon as possible. At each level, I always reevaluate my goals and establish new ones. I never want to become complacent, but always push myself further.
It seems unreal, yet I couldn't be happier to have so many people across the country rooting for me to succeed. It is a very humbling thing to see friends and strangers pulling for you to achieve your dreams. I am very grateful for the words of encouragement week in and week out.
I felt ready to step into the next stage of my life and become a professional golfer. There's a lot that went into the decision, but it's a lifelong dream of mine. Without the support of everyone at home, it wouldn't have been possible.
Although both are accomplished athletes, neither of his parents played golf growing up. His dad played college baseball at Lehigh University and his mom played college basketball at Moravian College.
Jordan is a die-hard Texas sports fan! While playing golf for the University of Texas, he spent as much time at football, basketball and baseball games as possible and still enjoys cheering for the Longhorn teams.
As a 4-year-old Texas Rangers fan, Jordan went to catch a pop up, lost it in the lights with his Dad and had his two front teeth knocked out at the game. Throwing out the first pitch at a 2013 Rangers game has been a personal highlight for Jordan.
Born and raised in Texas, Jordan is an avid country music fan, and has had the privilege of spending time with Jake Owen at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and when Jake played at Jordan's inaugural charity event in the fall.
The groundwork was set into motion in the Fall of 2013 following Jordan's participation on the United States President's Cup Team. Jordan’s experiences on and off the course have shaped his outlook toward service. The Jordan Spieth Charitable Fund is his platform to lend time, awareness, and financial assistance to three areas of philanthropic concern: Special needs youth, military families, and junior golf.
