To no surprise 22 year old phenom Jordan Spieth was named the Golfer of the Year voted on by his peers. He earned this title by winning five tournaments including two of the four majors, the Masters and the U.S. Open. In the other two he was right in the hunt on the last day finishing one shot out of a playoff at the Open Championship at St. Andrews and finally a second place finish at the last major of the year, the PGA Championship had all but sealed the deal for his title of Golfer of the Year. To cap off his incredible season, he won the FedEx Cup and its $10 million dollar bonus bringing his 2015 winnings to a total of $22 million.
Jordan will most likely be the favorite to win just about any tournament he tees it up at in 2016, and I expect him to win at least one more major this year, and maybe even the Gold Medal for the United States! I cant wait to see what him and his caddy Michael Greller can do in 2016! Give yourself a round of applause Jordan for a stellar 2015 season!
