Jordan Spieth gave humble answer about spending golf winnings

Jordan Spieth has had an amazing year, hasn’t he? This season, he won three of the four major PGA Championships. On Sunday, Spieth won the FedEx Cup and, with it the $10 million bonus prize.

He has racked up over $22 million this season in just his winnings in tournaments. Spieth has tried to stay humble and he showed that on Sunday after his win.

According to USA TODAY’s For the Win, Spieth gave a very humble answer when he was asked about his plans for the money. It was the most “Jordan Spieth” answer ever.

“What it allows me to do is, it allows me to now even more so, take care of the people that have given me this position and allowed this to happen. Like I always say, it is a team effort. A lot of behind the scenes work goes in when we’re at home, when we’re in the early stages and on course here.”

He continued and talked about how he wanted to give the credit back to his team members.

“It’s fantastic. I have an opportunity now, with a year like this and a bonus like that, to celebrate and to share it with the people that have made it possible. And that’s kind of the plan. Our team did an unbelievable job this year. Everything was exactly how we needed it to be to peak at the right times. If we can continue to do that, then we’ll have more seasons like this.”

There’s no actual plans of what he wants to do with the money, but I’m sure Spieth will come up with an amazing way to pay back everyone who helped him along the way.
