It’s almost hard to believe the Dallas, Texas native is only 30 years old because he has been such a fixture on the PGA Tour for years. He has 16 professional wins, 13 of them on the PGA Tour, and the only major he hasn’t won yet is the PGA Championship. Jordan came close though in 2015 when he finished 2nd.
For his 30th birthday, the PGA Tour released a highlight reel of his 30 best shots on the Tour. To say that he is a magician around the green is an understatement. Also, until this video I didn’t realize Jordan Spieth had 3 holes in one in PGA Tour events.
30 shots for Spieth’s 30th birthday 🥳

For anyone keeping track, Jordy’s three holes-in-one on Tour were at the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational, the 2015 BMW Championship, and 2013 Puerto Rico Open. Suffice it to say he’s DUE for an ace in an event. And for anyone curious, the PGA Tour record for most aces by a player is jointly held by Robert Allenby and Hal Sutton who each have 10 holes-in-one in PGA Tour events. There are five players tied for second with seven. Tiger Woods only has 2, the 1997 Phoenix Open and 1996 Greater Milwaukee Open.
Jordan Spieth is currently ranked 12th in the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR). He was last ranked 1st in the world back in 2016 when Spieth’s game was on fire. Spieth shares a birthday with fellow PGA Tour player Min Woo Lee who also received a tribute on social media:
It’s hard to believe I play the same game of golf as these guys when I see those shots.
Jordan is currently 30th in FedEx Cup Points standings as the season winds down.
