The future of American golf may be saved by this Texas native.  Jordan has now won 2 PGA Tour Tournaments in his first three years on the tour.  He seems poised to really break out after backing up his Championship at the Valspar with a second place finish at the Valero Texas Open.  Spieth has played great on two of the most demanding golf courses on the PGA Tour.  These rounds were were under high winds at long and narrow tracks.  He has the kind of game that would fit into most of the majors.  I wouldn't be surprised to see a victory there this year and many throughout Jordan's career.  After all, he was in the lead on Sunday at the Masters...at twenty years old!  To have this kind of talent at such a young age is remarkable and reminds me of a few players but one that probably started off hotter than any others.  Tiger Woods came out of the gates taking the PGA Tour by storm with multiple victories as well.  Up to this point in Jordan's playing career, he has all of the signs of potentially winning this debate.  He could most certainly beat Tiger right now.  Tiger can barely get through 9 holes without getting injured.  But, when looking at the numbers closer.  Tiger had 7 victories, 3 seconds, and 27 top tens through his first 63 PGA Tour Tournaments.  While Spieth has 2 victories, 6 seconds and 22 top tens through 66 events.  They are very close but I would have to to give the edge to the young Tiger for his ability to convert more of those potential second place finishes into victories.  It looks like Jordan is growing by leaps and bounds now.  If the trend continues on this same pace as compared to Tiger, Spieth could have a few monstrous next few seasons.  The Shell Houston Open is a good prep for the Masters and I would be surprised if this Longhorn doesn't finish top ten this week.  It also looks like Jordan Spieth will be the American carrying on the torch of United States golf, for many years to come.
