Athlon Counts Down the 30 Golfers to Watch for Majors Season

They’re the cream of the major championship crop, circa 2014 — the Athlon Major Championship Dream Team. Leading up to The Masters, we'll be unveiling Athlon Sports’ 30 players to watch for majors season, with commentary on each from the Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee.

No. 15: Jordan Spieth

Born: July 27, 1993, Dallas, Texas | Career PGA Tour Wins: 1 | 2013 Wins (Worldwide): 1 | 2013 Earnings (PGA Tour): $3,879,820 (10th) World Ranking: 13

Brandel Chamblee's Take

Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods are the only two players to have ever won the U.S. Junior Amateur multiple times, and last year Jordan did something Tiger never did, winning a Tour event while still a teenager. The win propelled the former No. 1 amateur in the world all the way to 10th on the money list after starting out the year with no status. Star status will follow the young Texan everywhere he goes in 2014 as we all watch him continue to do unprecedented things, thanks largely to a razor-sharp putter and a maturity that cannot be explained.
