No. 9: Jordan Spieth
Continued (page 3 of 3)
When Chris was 4, her mother, Ginny, collapsed on the kitchen floor with a brain aneurysm. She survived. Chris' father, Bob Julius, was an electrical engineer at Bethlehem Steel. At first, Chris and her five siblings were split up, sent to other families to live. Eventually, Bob was able to gather everyone back together. Ginny was handicapped the remainder of her life, severely so as time passed. Bob took care of her for 44 years.
All of Jordan's life, he has watched people he loves taking care of other people he loves. That may not be much help on the back nine of Augusta National where extra gears roar. But pretty much every place else, it's the voice that whispers to him what actually matters.
