“A Star was Born in 2015,” the headline to Martin Dempster’s story in the Scotsman reads. The subject is Jordan Spieth, of course. “It wasn’t just the fact Spieth won two majors that stood out as he enjoyed his annus mirabilis. The young Texan went about his business as though he’d been at the top of the game for some time, not the new kid on the block. He’s classy, on and off the course. His family values helped him lay the foundations for his career and there’s no chance whatsoever they’ll ever be forgotten. Like McIlroy, Spieth seems the type that will never get too big for his boots.”

Only time will tell.”
