Jordan Spieth is a closer
A profile of Jordan Spieth, his closing status, and who he wants to be as a golfer.
Is he the next Tiger Woods? I don't know, but I do know that Jordan Spieth's inaugural year on the PGA Tour was elite. He was ranked No. 810 at the beginning of 2013 and No. 22 at the end of it.
That's big-boy stuff from a guy who's not yet of drinking age. And he did it by closing out tournaments in style.
Jim Moriarty wrote a tremendous profile of Spieth in the new GolfDigest and asked Spieth about his closing attitude.
"I don't know what it is, to be honest," said Spieth. "I just believe it's going to happen. Whenever the heat's on, my whole life, I've just kind of learned to focus a little more."
The fact that Spieth can't really describe how he does what he does is a little bit terrifying. When somebody can define the way they close, that means they can lose it. It seems to be baked into Spieth's DNA.
You should go read the rest of the profile -- it's as great as Spieth has been thus far in his career.
