The 25-year-old Spieth has five top-10 finishes this season. That includes a third-place finish at the Masters Tournament and a tie for ninth at The Open Championship.
The legend of Spieth continued to grow in 2016-17, where he won three times. One of those wins was his third major championship overall -- the Open Championship -- leaving him just a PGA Championship shy of a career Grand Slam. Along with the three victories, Spieth was also a runner up three times and a third-place finisher twice. Much was expected of Spieth at Hazeltine in 2016 and much was delivered. Spieth joined Patrick Reed -- who he paired with in all four team matches -- as the only Americans to compete in all five sessions. Spieth went 2-2-1 over that stretch and was actually questionable for his Sunday singles match against Henrik Stenson, as some fingers were bothering him from an aggressive high-five Reed gave him the day before. Spieth, who figures to be a team leader for years to come, tasted Ryder Cup triumph for the first time in just his second start.
