After the year he’s had, Jordan Spieth is going to need not only a bigger trophy case, but a larger room to fit all the hardware he’s won this past season. Spieth was voted by his peers as the PGA Tour Player of the Year on Friday, which was no surprise. The only player who joined the conversation for a brief period was Jason Day, but Spieth closed the door on that after he took care of business with a four-shot victory at the Tour Championship to win the FedEx Cup.
Spieth’s year was inspiring, to say the least. I’m not going to compare him to Tiger Woods because that’s simply not fair, but Spieth’s accomplishments were perhaps the closest thing we’ve seen to Woods in his prime.
