Jordan Spieth was born in Dallas, Texas, attended St. Monica Catholic School, and graduated from Jesuit College Preparatory School in 2011. Spieth played college golf for the Longhorns at the University of Texas. In his freshman year at Texas, Spieth won three events and led the team in scoring average. He helped his team win the NCAA championship, was named to the All-Big 12 Team, Big 12 Freshman of the Year and Player of the Year, and was a first-team All-American. Spieth earned a spot in the U.S. Open in 2012 as an alternate after Brandt Snedeker withdrew and he tied for 21st and was the low amateur. That's when he became the number one amateur in the World Amateur Golf Ranking after his performance in the U.S. Open and Patrick Cantlay's decision to turn professional.
Midway through his sophomore year at Texas in 2012, the 19-year-old Spieth turned professional. He partnered with Under Armour for sponsorship in January 2013 and with BioSteel Sports Supplements in March. In 2014, Spieth made his debut at The Masters and shared the 54-hole lead with Bubba Watson. During the final round, Spieth at one point was the standalone leader by two strokes and in position to become the youngest Masters champion in history; Tiger Woods holds the record at age 21. But Watson retook the lead heading into the back nine and never relinquished it. Spieth finished in a tie for second with Jonas Blixt, becoming the youngest runner-up in Masters history. Spieth ended the tournament having shot no worse than an even-par (72) in any of his rounds. His finish moved him into the top 10 in the world rankings for the first time.
In 2015, Spieth set the record for the most birdies during the Masters by making 28 and became the second-youngest person to win the Masters; and on June 21, Spieth won the U.S. Open to claim his second major championship.
