- Jordan Spieth won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions with an eight-shot victory.
- The 22-year-old remained humble when interviewed.
Jordan Spieth demolished the field in Hawaii over the weekend. As the second youngest player to ever reach the number one spot, Spieth suggested he would be seeking advice from some of the more experienced guys.
“I think it would be wise to ask (Tiger) or Rory (McIlroy) or I mean, you could even ask Phil (Mickelson) what it’s like to stay at the level he’s been at for so many years. I think it would be wise to ask more questions than I do. I haven’t done much. I haven’t received a whole lot of advice on staying there, other than keep on trying to win tournaments. I mean the more you win, the higher up in the rankings you’re going to stay,” said Spieth.
“But if you’re talking about how to control a lot of the noise on the outside and really stay disciplined and strive towards something else, I’m trying to figure some of that out on my own because everyone is different. But I do think there is something in asking someone like Tiger a lot of questions on how he’s been able to do it,” added the two-time major winner.
Spieth played one of the shots of the tournament with this 3-iron approach, the 270-yard shot almost bagged him a double-eagle. For a 22-year-old to see the value in asking for help, especially after his most recent success, tells you a lot about what he’s capable of.
