Jordan Spieth Did Not Win PGA Championship But Becomes World Number One

So he didn’t win his third major in 2015, but that hasn’t stopped Jordan Spieth from capturing the title of World Number One.

Spieth had previously won the Masters and US Open.  It was Jason Day at near even odds who ended up winning the PGA Championship.

At 22, Spieth becomes the second-youngest No. 1. Tiger Woods was 21 when he went to No. 1 in 1997.

Spieth has earned over $10 million this year and collected a cool $1.1 million with Sunday's second-place finish.

"I accomplished one of my life-long goals and in the sport of golf,'' Spieth said. "That will never be taken away from me now. I'll always be a No. 1 player in the world. That's what, when I look back on this year, the consistency that we have had this year and especially being able to step it up in the biggest stages, that's a huge confidence builder, and that's what's allowed us as a team to become the best, the No. 1 ranked, and I believe right now, the best in the world.''
