PGA Tour star Jordan Spieth is one of the top golfers of our time. At just 21 years of age, he won five tournaments in 2015 including two majors (The Masters and the U.S. Open) and was named the PGA Tour Player of the year. This morning Matt Lauer sat down with Mr. Spieth (who was clad in his green Masters jacket) for an interview to talk about how he handles pressure, his goals for 2016, how he’s preparing for the Masters (April 4th through April 10th), whether or not the Drive, Chip and Putt Competition at Augusta National is inspiring young golfers, and the Rio Olympics where Jordan will be competing against some of the top golfers in the world for a gold medal. Be sure to watch the video below to see this great interview!
“For me this year, I’m going to try and have a chance to win at least two majors on Sunday afternoon. If we can do it in all of them again, that’d be spectacular, but getting ourselves up there at the biggest events of the year is key.” – Jordan Spieth
“I can’t imagine anything better than standing up there knowing that you’ve accomplished something for your country, for your family, for yourself like an Olympic podium. Walking the opening ceremonies with the best athletes in the world is going to be maybe the coolest golf experience of my life. If I get the chance to stand on that podium I imagine it’ll be a pretty similar feeling.” – Jordan Spieth on competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics
