Jordan Spieth is a big Bryce Harper fan and plays like him, too
Jordan Spieth and Bryce Harper are both awesome at sports -- see what Spieth has to say about the Washington Nationals outfielder.
Jordan Spieth is raw, focused, honest and absurdly talented. He was a child prodigy, and he was born in the early 1990s.
He is also already contending at the highest level of his sport.
Does that remind you of anyone else I might have mentioned in the headline of this post?
Spieth talked to PGATour.com about his passion for sports and who he's a fan of:
In golf, I mean, you can definitely single out all the young great golfers to one guy, in the game of golf, in the way that it's grown, but as far as -- I'm a sports fanatic, so I follow all sports. I'm big fans of the guys, the Bryce Harpers, my age, and, you know, guys in the NFL, rookie quarterbacks, Russell Wilson is probably my size. I'm not sure if I stood next to him he would eat me, but still...
Spieth plays like those guys too, especially Harper -- exciting, absolutely unafraid and sometimes reckless, in a good way though.
He gives you a look I’ve never seen before. It’s like a mean look, but not really mean. It’s a look of I-know-where-I’m-going. It’s not cocky. It’s confident. It’s wonderful to watch what he’s doing.
Where Spieth has been going is straight to the top of leaderboards (two top 10s and $530,000 earned in 2013) as well as heading toward earning his 2014 PGA Tour card.
He has already earned unlimited sponsor exemptions for the remainder of 2013 (which he'll get a lot of), and if the season ended today he would have won enough money to finish 146th on the money list.
Top 125 get their Tour card for the following year.
Spieth, like Harper, is well on his way.
