Jordan Spieth Net Worth: $41M
Being the youngest person to win three of the four golf majors in two years certainly attracts international attention. Spieth’s earnings from his victories on the golf course are impressive but where there’s prize money, sponsorship deals and endorsements follow.
After turning pro, Spieth won PGA Rookie of the Year and placed second at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Since then, Spieth has built up a net worth that’s reported by Forbes to be at $41.2 million in various ways.
Jordan Spieth Endorsements and Golf Earnings
In 2017, the golfer banked $24 million off the course, compared to the $6.4 million he made on the course, according to Golf Digest. The incredibly gifted athlete is also extremely marketable; Spieth has forged lucrative partnerships with top-tier companies like Under Armour, NetJets, Rolex, Titleist, AT&T, Perfect Sense, Coca-Cola and SuperStroke. Last year Spieth achieved the hallmark of sports greatness and joined the esteemed league of athletes to grace the cover of a Wheaties box.
Jordan Spieth Real Estate and Charity
Other 20-somethings share apartments with roommates, but Spieth calls a $7.1 million Dallas 16,655-square-foot mansion — complete with infinity pool, 12-car garage, golf simulator, indoor basketball court and man cave — his home. Although his digs are undeniably lavish, Spieth isn’t known as a big spender or collector of extravagant purchases.
Spieth uses his platform and leverages his wealth for charitable work, having established The Jordan Spieth Family Foundation, which is dedicated to youth with special needs, bringing golf to young people, supporting military families and pediatric cancer research.
