JORDAN SPIETH | TIGER WOODS

Jordan Spieth has hailed the influence Tiger Woods has had on modern day golf and believes the 14-time major champion doesn’t get the credit he deserves.


Speaking to David Feherty for his Golf Channel programme ‘Feherty’, Spieth, who was only three when Woods won the 1997 Masters, was very thankful to his fellow American for helping to provide the lifestyle which players enjoy today.

“Tiger deserves a million thank you notes and a million cases of nice wine from every golfer that's coming up and wants to play the PGA Tour as well as those that are already on the PGA Tour,” he said. “He 100% deserves credit for doing the same as what Arnie and Jack did and just taking it to the level that it is today.

“He really doesn't get the credit he deserves from us players. I don't think we stress it enough to other people. You can make a living in one week on the PGA Tour – we're just so lucky for that.”

Spieth also talks about sharing a joke with Woods when he met him for the first time at the 2012 Quicken Loans National. Watch the full clip below.
