Super Spieth Surpasses Goals

Emerging superstar Jordan Spieth has revealed, perhaps unsurprisingly, that his dramatic rise this year has led to him having to revise his goals.

Even one so awesomely talented can't predict such a ludicrous rise to prominence as Spieth has enjoyed this year, that has seen him climb from anonymity and 809th in the world to 10th in the FedEx standings, and 29th in the world.

Spieth indicating surprise at the speed of his development, and also his ambitions to reach the pinnacle of the game, said: “It’s been interesting because I’ve had to sit back and readjust goals this year a couple different times.

Off the course, you know, there’s always a next goal. There’s always a higher achievement, until you’re the best in the world and you’re winning almost every time like the guy that’s there right now.”

Spieth's sublime 2013 form has not only earned him a high world ranking, but also a place on Fred Couples' Presidents Cup team, and a shot at the FedEx Cup jackpot.

On his chances Spieth said: “I think a good solid week would be a great move towards next week and trying to beat 30 players. The odds going in are better than any other event I’ve ever played, so that would be pretty cool.”

Spieth's rise has been arguably the most eye-catching story on the PGA Tour this year, and at just 20 he has found himself in with a very decent chance of competing at the Tour Championship.
