Texas Valero Open Jordan in the Hunt

js7

Another tournament another nice round of golf.

Jordan impressed today with a 3 under on the tough PGA course that saw most players over par after 36 holes.

Jordan now at 4 under par and tied for 4th just 2 shots back from Jimmy Walker.

the course is getting easier so scores will likely improve tomorrow.

Look for another exciting round with Jordan in the hunt for yet another victory.

Jordan Spieth Buys New Digs in Dallas

 

Well deserved. Check out Jordans new mansion in old Dallas.

Personally, I’m a fan of Jordan Spieth. The kid has one hell of a golf game, amazing composure for a 21-year-old, and, without question, will be racking up major championships in the very near future. However, the kid is far from flashy, and the new house he purchased in Dallas couldn’t directly reflect his personality more than it does.












Here’s the description of the house from the home listing:

Magnificent Old Preston Hollow beauty with exquisite amenities including droin ceiling and art niches in hall, arched doorways, two 12 ft. stone islands in chef’s kitchen, beautiful family room open to kitchen with views of pool, 288 bottle wine closet, media room, gameroom, 5 bedrooms have private baths, office with 2 story ceilings and paneled doors leading to computer work stations. Lovely master has private sitting area, fireplace and gorgeous bath.

Elegant and regal. Not exactly what I’d be going for as a guy that just drank my first legal beer a little less than a year ago, but you do you, Jordan. I guess it’s not a bad place to stash the girlfriend while you’re on tour tearing it up on and off the greens.

Come to think of it, looking back to two long years ago, 21-year-old me and Jordan Spieth aren’t all that different. He now lives in a five bedroom home – I lived in a ten bedroom home (fraternity house). He plays golf for a living – I played golf for a living…on a simulator…as an intern…when I was suppose to be working on photo galleries…of players like Spieth.

Nevertheless, we’re essentially the same guy. Just two Texans (suck it, I’m officially a resident) crushing it in our respective fields..

More on Jordans new diggs. Pretty nice.

Not only is Jordan Spieth climbing to the top of the golf world, he’s also making major strides in the real estate world too.

Spieth had a whirlwind end to 2014, winning both the Emirates Australian Open in November and the Hero World Challenge a week later in December.

Currently ranked No. 6 in the world, Spieth logged his first win of 2015 at the Valspar Championship March 15 and looks to edge past his T2 finish at last year’s Masters at Augusta National in a few weeks.

That’s the kind of success that allowed the 21-year-old to purchase a 7,378-square foot home for $2,275,000 in his hometown Dallas, according to candysdirt.com. And, let us say, it’s not too shabby.

The backyard, unfortunately sans putting green.

I mean, there’s no putting green, but we guess he’s doing just fine.

The Tiger Takeover is real Golfs Rising Stars

Golf StarCheck out the rising starts of the PGA.

RISING

Jordan Spieth (+9%): His star-making performance at Valspar was so unlike his other three victories worldwide – this was gritty, imperfect, clutch. The kid isn’t short on confidence, but a win without his best stuff can only bolster his self-belief.

Rivalries (+6%): Tiger vs. Phil? That duel was woefully one-sided when it mattered most and is now out of steam. Rory vs. Rickie? McIlroy had more Tour wins last August than Fowler has in his entire career. Spieth and Patrick Reed might never win 40-plus events, but they’re emotional firecrackers with a rare ability to invigorate a tournament. Together, they can challenge Rory’s throne.

Tiger Takeover (+5%): Rory has Tiger’s old video game. Adam Scott has his old swing. Bubba has his old house. Spieth has his old sponsor (AT&T). P-Reed has his old Sunday outfit. When it comes to Woods, maybe imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery.

P-Reed (+4%): For some reason, he reopened a controversy that had all but died. Nearly snagging the Valspar less than a week later is proof that this guy thrives on chaos.

Sean O’Hair (+3%): What a remarkable third act this could be, after an auspicious start to his career and then the sad fallout with his overbearing father. That he’s still grinding, 16 years later, is a testament to his heart and talent.

Harris English (+1%): His Sunday 65 didn’t just vault him into the top 10 in Tampa. It also propelled him to No. 52 in the world, just outside the OWGR cut-off for the Masters.


FALLING

Adam Scott’s putting (-1%): Small sample size and all, it’s tempting to overreact to his short-stick struggles. But how soon we forget that he didn’t exactly light it up with the long wand, either.

Justin Rose (-2%): The classy Englishman was in fine form at the end of ’14, but since he took a spill in San Diego and injured his right wrist, he’s gone MC-MC-55-MC.

Swedish Golf Federation (-3%): A Swedish golfer has been banned from playing any golf course in his home country for one year. His offense? Sending an approach shot into the group ahead of him and injuring one of the players. Huh? A simple “Sorry about that …” didn’t suffice?

54-hole leaders (-4%): Seems Ryan Moore had no chance Sunday, even with a three-shot lead and six to play: The third-round leader/co-leader has gone on to win only five times in 18 Tour events. Heavy is the head that owns the lead, or something like that.

Tiger (-5%): It’s revealing that Woods still doesn’t think he’s ready to contend, even at one of his personal playgrounds. This isn’t 2010 – he can’t just parachute into Augusta and contend.

Drug testing (-7%): You know there’s a massive credibility issue when you can’t decide whom to believe, John Daly or the PGA Tour
