Jordan Spieth, a former world number-one golfer, competes professionally on the PGA Tour. 

The athlete turned pro in 2012, and the following year, he made a victorious debut with his first PGA Tour win. 

Jordan continued to amass victories on the PGA Tour, triumphing in several championships. The 2015 season remains remarkable for him, earning numerous prestigious awards and wins. 

He had a breakthrough win at the 2015 Masters Tournament, becoming the second-youngest champion of the event. Likewise, he claimed all the major titles for the year, most notably, PGA Player of the Year and Arnold Palmer Awards.

However, Jordan experienced a major downfall in 2018, going the whole year without any victory. After an underwhelming performance, he made the biggest comeback in 2021, returning to winning form.   

In the 2022 Presidents Cup, the golfer partnered with Justin Thomas, winning four matches. To this date, Jordan holds 16 professional victories- 13 PGA Tour wins, 3 European Tour, and one from another tournament.
