The 21-year-old credits much of his success to his sister, Ellie. The 14-year-old has a neurological disorder that puts her on the autism spectrum and she inspired her brother to set up the Jordan Spieth Charitable Fund, which raises money for young people with 'special needs', military families and junior golf. "Being Ellie's brother humbles me every day of my life," Spieth says.
He always buys and gives Ellie a keychain as a souvenir from the places he visits.

Greller scrapped the algebra for golf clubs after offering to caddy for an amateur for free. He then put Greller in touch with Spieth who was looking for a caddy in a amateur competition and the duo hit it off straight away.
After spending years hanging out at the Chick-fil-A across from Jesuit, his high school in Dallas, Spieth decided to feast on fast food after claiming the coveted Green Jacket. And Chick-fil-A opened on a Sunday just for him.
Spieth going to Chick-fil-A isn’t the first time that a winner of The Masters has gone to a popular food joint after winning. Last year’s winner, Bubba Watson, celebrated at everyone’s favorite breakfast stop, Waffle House, with family and friends.
On the eve of the biggest round of his life, Spieth turned to Jason Segel and friends. On Sunday, he called it "one of the greatest movies in the world."
His father played college baseball whilst his mother played basketball. He got into golf when his mum bought him plastic clubs as a toddler so he could distract himself while his younger brother could be looked after without distraction.
