Jordan Spieth wants golfers to thank Tiger Woods

Posted March 9th, 2016


Former Texas golfer,  and the world’s top player, Jordan Spieth told Golf Channel’s David Ferherty that former world No. 1 and golfing legend Tiger Woods “deserves a million thank you notes.”

Spieth’s full quote on Woods:

“Tiger Woods deserves a million thank you notes and a million cases of nice wine from every golfer that’s coming up and wants to play the PGA Tour as well as those that are already on the PGA Tour … He 100 percent deserves credit for doing what Arnie did in his day — Arnie and Jack. And taking it to the level it is today. He really doesn’t get the credit he deserves from us players. We all believe it. I don’t think we stress it enough to other people. How much we owe to Tiger and Phil and the greats before them.”
