Jordan Spieth Takes Over #1 Spot in Golf

The 22-year old Texan didn't capture his 3rd Grand Slam Sunday, but he did take over the top spot in the golf rankings.

Jason Day captured the PGA yesterday, proving that he is another of the 20-something year old phenoms who intend to dominate the sport for years to come.

Jordan Spieth meanwhile moved to the head of the line in the world rankings with his 2nd place finish.

Jordan joined Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only golfers to finish in the Top 4 of all four major championships in a calendar year. Spieth also finished the 16 rounds of major play 54 under par, and that is also a record.

The Texan continues to remind one and all that he doesn't have to hate you to beat you.

But the media already new that Jordan is "such a nice young man."

Hook 'em, Jordan!
