WINDERMERE, Fla. (Oct. 26, 2011) -- Texas freshman Jordan Spieth already has garnered more accomplishments than just about every golfer his age. Two U.S. Junior Amateur titles, a 2-0-1 record at the 2011 Walker Cup and a quarterfinal appearance at the U.S. Amateur this year have helped make Spieth one of the biggest names in amateur golf.
But that doesn’t make his first collegiate individual title any less special.
The morning after the the 2011 HP Byron Nelson Tournament an exhausted Jordan Spieth met with Golfweek for a portrait session and instruction piece at Honors Golf Club in Dallas, TX.
“I’ve gone through the experience (of a college tournament) and failed the last two times,” said Spieth, who shot a final-round 5-under 67 to win the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational on Tuesday at Isleworth Golf and Country Club.
“I thought I could learn from it after doing it the first time. It looks like I needed two events, and the third time is a charm. But I’m just really happy to play well on a course like Isleworth.”
