Jordan Spieth’s victory on Sunday was amazing.
Jordan Spieth took home his eighth win as a PGA Tour pro on Sunday, which means our Inside the Numbers this week is all Jordan all the time. What he’s doing is going under-appreciated because of what Tiger Woods did (of course), but here’s a look at the crazy numbers Golden Child is posting.
Inside the Numbers of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational.
0 — Golfers since World War II with as many or more wins than Spieth before turning 23. Zero. Tiger Woods had seven on his 23rd birthday. Spieth will have at least eight.
9 — Putts for Spieth on the back nine on Sunday and 24 overall. He gained 4.1 strokes with the putter overall on Sunday, which is a preposterous number.
7 — of Spieth’s eight wins have come in his last 31 starts.
86 — It took Spieth 86 events to get his eighth victory. Tiger, on the other hand, had 23 victories in his first 86 events. The age stat is a bit of an empty one when you look at it like this, but if you consider how much Spieth has improved at an age when Tiger was still playing amateur golf, it’s worth considering.
6 — of Spieth’s last seven 54-hole leads have been converted into victories. The only one that he failed to convert? How about the 2016 Masters. You remember that one, right?
