How much did Jordan Spieth earn in 2015?
Post by Sports Writer, Derek Clements
He may only be 22 years old, but Jordan Spieth has the world at his feet. He is the World No.1 and the USA's new poster boy for golf. A perfect storm of great golfer, family man and eductaed college kid. He has a mass appeal to the American middle class. That in turn means that he has huge earning power and he is only just getting started. We take a closer look at what he has earned to date in his 2014/15 season.
When Jordan Spieth won the Australian Open in 2014 he could have had no idea what lay ahead in the coming 12 months. It turned out to be the first of an incredible seven victories.
That win in Australia was quickly followed by another at the Hero World Challenge, then came the Valspar championship, The Masters, US Open, John Deere Classic and Tour Championship. He also finished second at the US PGA Championship and fourth at The Open, where he finished one shot short of making the three-man playoff.
He broke all kinds of records in 2015 and you will not be surprised to learn that chief among those was the amount of money he earned on the course. Taking into account the $10m bonus he pocketed for winning the FedEx Cup, Spieth earned an astonishing $22.5m in prize-money alone. With sponsorship and bonuses, he will have earned at least $45m in 2015.
It is an impressive total, but he still has a great deal more to do if he is to become golf’s top annual earner. Spieth is one of the good guys, a young man who says the right things, behaves impeccably and spends hours signing autographs. If he continues as he did in 2015 his earning power will hit the stratosphere.
