Jordan Spieth named as one of world’s most marketable athletes
Former Texas Longhorn star Jordan Spieth has been named as the third most marketable athlete in the world.
Sports Pro Magazine came up with the list. CNN.com analyzed some of the data here. CNN said the rankings were based, in part, on the Celebrity Davie-Brown Index, which “measures consumer perceptions” of more than 5,600 celebrities around the world.
The two athletes who were ahead of Spieth, this year’s winner of the Masters:
Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard
and Brazilian soccer star Neymar.
Rounding out the top five were soccer great David Beckham
and tennis great Roger Federer.
