Here is Jordan Spieth, No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking, getting his coveted green jacket. So proud of this guy! He graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, though I have heard an unconfirmed rumor (which is why it’s a rumor) he spent some time at St Mark’s.
Jordan went to the University of Texas at Austin, left midway through his sophomore year in 2013, and started playing pro golf. He learned to play golf as a wee one at Brookhaven Country Club, where his family, who lives in Midway Hills, still belongs. He’s got the gift!
This weekend, the humble and most gentlemanly young man from Dallas graduated to major golf champion on the sport’s biggest stage. The 21-year-old held off strong runs and swings from the world’s best players. On Sunday, he became the world’s second-youngest golfer to claim the highly coveted green jacket. Tiger Woods was the first in 1997.
The University of Texas even burned UT tower orange in his honor Sunday night.
Somewhere in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, near Bluffview
Jordan Spieth lives in Dallas, and we have told you that his Uptown townhome is on the market for $1,285,000. And that he bought a new, 7,378-square-foot stone mansion for $2.2ish in Preston Hollow, near Bluffview. Jump to see photos of Jordan Spieth’s townhome! (more…)
