Y EAH, Spieth is already a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, including the Valspar Championship a couple of weeks ago. But what makes the 21-year-old the world’s most exciting prospect is his ability to conjure the unbelievable when it matters most. How did he force the playoff that eventually led to him winning his first pro tournament at the 2013 John Deere Classic? Oh, you know, just by draining a 44-foot bunker shot at the final hole. And how about the Valspar? Three shots behind with six holes to play, the kid made a series of pressure-laden birdies and par saves, including a clutch 12-foot putt at the final hole to force a playoff. He won with a 30-foot monster at the third extra hole. For pure excitement and watchability, there are few better than this Texan. W ATCHING Reed go toe-to-toe with Spieth over those playoff holes at the Valspar Championship gave us a glimpse of what the next 10 years might look like at the top end of the PGA Tour. He’s the player that some golf fans love to hate, with a checkered past and a mountain of attitude to match. But the Texan continues to stare the world down and just goes on producing highlights and results. In winning last year’s WGC-Cadillac Championship, Reed became just the fifth golfer in history to have three victories on the PGA Tour before his 24th birthday and he’s already added to that tally this year with his playoff win over Jimmy Walker at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
