Jor­dan Spi­eth

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

NEW TOUR PRO­FES­SIONAL

Na­tion­al­ity: Amer­i­can

A cor­po­rate dream: If this list was cre­ated at the start of 2015, Spi­eth would be higher. He was the great new star of the game in Amer­ica, the anti-Tiger who seemed to rep­re­sent a new dawn in golf­ing celebrity. Like McIl­roy, Spi­eth ex­udes de­cency and good sense amid a sea of vac­u­ous celebrity.

A man of sub­stance: Spi­eth has an aura of in­tegrity that stands for more than sell­ing t-shirts and shoes.

The one doubt: Spi­eth’s in­fa­mous melt down at The Masters last year is the only ques­tion mark as to his long-term im­pact on the game.
