What Jordan Spieth gets up to in his fancy house
This might surprise some of you...
Words: Tim Southwell Photography: Some Estate Agent Guy
He's earned multiple millions this year on his way to bagging the Masters, The US Open and the FedExCup. Not to mention the $25 million through endorsements. So, he's entitled to buy himself a fancy pad. Here it is: Jordan's 7,400 square-foot Preston Hollow home in Dallas. And what he gets up to of a day time...
What $2.2million gets you in Dallas:
- Five bedrooms, 5.5 baths.
Some of the amenities include:
- Two 12 ft. stone islands in chef's kitchen.
- 288-bottle wine closet
- Media room
- Game room
- Office with two story ceilings and panelled doors leading to computer work stations.
In January this year, Spieth signed a 10-year deal with Under Armour through 2025. In 2014 he reportedly earned $12.3 million overall with about $6 million from off-course business deals. His other endorsement partners Under Armour, AT&T, Titleist, Rolex, Perfect Sense Digital, NetJets and SuperStroke Grips.
After he won the Masters, Spieth famously said: “I'm certainly looking forward to some rest. I probably won't touch a club for a few days. I'm going to kind of settle in at home.”
And that's just what he did. He made himself comfortable and had the odd daydream about winning the Grand Slam one day. The house is obviously a lucky charm as Jordan won the US Open soon after he bought the place, and was a putt away from the play-offs in the two remaining majors.
“After winning a major championship, you better believe that you're playing as good or better than anybody in the world" said Jordan. "So why would that stop? I'm not going to sit there and stop practicing or stop working and party or anything.”
