Jordan Spieth has the drive to build off of his success as a rookie

Jordan Spieth

AGE: 20 / HEIGHT: 6-1 / WEIGHT: 185 pounds / LIVES IN DALLAS

Remember last year when Jordan Spieth's name seemed like a fixture on PGA Tour leader boards? The 20-year-old had one of the best rookie seasons in recent memory, including a win, three second-place finishes and nine top 10s. He also won two matches as a captain's pick for the U.S. Presidents Cup team.

Impressive as all of that might seem, Spieth says it isn't good enough. You read that right. Perhaps the true mark of a champion isn't his or her accomplishments, but the determination to improve upon them. Spieth says he learned last year that he has to become a better all-around player.
