There is so much to know about Jordan Spieth – read on!

Jordan Spieth’s Bio

Jordan Spieth was born Jordan Alexander Spieth on July 27, 1993, in Dallas, Texas and was raised in his hometown. His parents are Shawn Spieth and Mary Christine Spieth, who was married as Mary Christine Julius and together, they have three children. Spieth’s other siblings are younger than him. His brother, Steven Spieth is a basketball player and he plays for the Brown Bears which is the male basketball team of the Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island and he also has a sister, Ellie Spieth (more on her much later). Spieth has a mixed heritage of both Irish and German, however, his nationality is American and his ethnicity is white.

Even though he got interested in golf at the tender age of four, Speith did not always prefer golf as his professional career may suggest today. He played a number of sports while growing up including baseball, American football, soccer and basketball. As a child, he would practice golf on the family’s lawn which he had mowed specifically for the purpose but he would later learn to play golf at Brookhaven Country Club and with then-golf expert, Cameron McCormick as his mentor at the age of ten. His excellence at the game continued to show in the course of attending high school at St. Monica Catholic School and Jesuit College Preparatory School where he completed high school before graduating in 2011. He attended University of Texas, Austin.

Jordan Spieth would follow in the footsteps of now legendary American golfer, Tiger Woods to win the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship twice (in 2009 and 2011) becoming only the second golfer to do so.

Jordan Spieth began his pursuit of a career in golf at a very early age. He won the Junior PGA Championship in 2009 and 2011. That feat ranked him No. 1 in the  AJGA Golf Rankings which ranks junior golfers around the world. In 2013, he earned the title of “PGA Tour Rookie of the Year” after participating in “Farmers Insurance Open”, “Puerto Rico Open”, “Tampa Bay championship”, “Wyndham Championship”. He also ranked 22nd in the Official World Golf Ranking and 10th on the PGA Tour money list at the end of the 2013 season. Two years later, he was crowned “PGA Tour Player of the Year‎” after winning “Masters Tournament” and the “U.S. Open”. At the end of the 2015 season, he became No. 1 on the Official World Golf Ranking.

He earned a total of $53 million in 2015 which saw him make the Golf Digest’s list of top earners for that year. Jordan Spieth is really living the dream right now. The Dallas golfer is one of the top money spinners in golf at the moment. In 2015, He bought a 7,400 square-foot home in Preston Hollow that includes five bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a 288-bottle wine closet, a media room, a game room an office and a pool. The mansion cost $2.3 million.

In January 2016, Spieth bought a 16,655-square-foot mega-mansion in Dallas, Texas for $7.1 million. The facilities in the house included a grill room, golf-simulator room, a wine cellar, an indoor basketball court, and a 12-car underground garage. Presently, Jordan Spieth is worth $30 million.

About His Family – Sister

As mentioned earlier, Jordan Spieth’s family is made up of his father, Shawn Spieth, his mother, Mary Christie Speith, and his siblings – Steven and Ellie Spieth. Spieth’s father Shawn is an entrepreneur and founder of a media analytics startup, having played baseball in college with Lehigh University while his mother is a computer engineer, who also played basketball at Moravian College. Little wonder where the athletic spirit in the family came from. But if anyone in the family would take credit for being the source of the sporting breakthroughs recorded and achieved in the family, especially by Jordan Spieth himself, it would be Ellie Spieth, the last born of the family. This is not speculation or permutations as it was actually said by the man – Jordan Spieth – himself.

Ellie Spieth was born with a health challenge. She has a condition which has limited her development as a human while also disrupting the development of her ability to speak. Her birth was premature and the neurological disorder is generally referred to as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) but Spieth says his little sister (Ellie) is the funniest person in the family despite her physical health condition. He also calls her “his hero” and doesn’t think he would be what he has turned out to be without her inspiration. Spieth has therefore set up a fund/foundation – Jordan Spieth Family Foundation – to cater for three charities including children with special needs like his little sister, Ellie.

Who Is Jordan Spieth’s Wife/Girlfriend?

Jordan Spieth is not married yet but the handsome charmer has been dating and is currently engaged to his longtime girlfriend and childhood sweetheart, Annie Verret. Annie is an events coordinator and since news of their relationship broke out, it has been making the rounds. She is a graduate of Texas Tech University, Lubbock with a 4.0 GPA and is also a lover of the sport (golf). Annie is a regular face at Jordan Spieth’s games and was seen at the Augusta National, Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. The lovebirds were seen sharing a kiss at the 2015 Presidents Cup. She currently works for The First Tee of Greater Dallas.
