Jordan Spieth on Masters win, rivals and family
    Jordan Spieth on Masters win, rivals and inspirational sisterJordan Spieth, 21, won his first major championship at the Masters on Sunday, tying the tournament records that Tiger Woods set when he was 21 years old. The Dallas native also shot the lowest 54-hole score in Masters history. He is the second-youngest man ever to win a green jacket. Spieth joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss his recent win.----------------------------------------­-----If the win was impressive, the Green Jacket address was off the scale. Jordan Spieth had prepared to win the Masters, not to deliver a speech before a global audience of millions. Yet, here he was, just 21 years old, not word perfect, but assured and controlled in his acknowledgements, revealing as he moved along the line of people to thank something of the secret underpinning to his astonishing success.There is in the professional life of a golfer a tight coterie of experts, coach, caddie, trainer, agent, etc, who combine to give the player a fighting chance on Sundays. Spieth thanked them all. And then there are those who contribute little materially but bind the whole. This would be Spieth’s family – and that is where the real story is to be told.His father Shaun, mother Chris, brother Steven, who is in the basketball programme at the prestigious Brown University in Rhode Island, and even his grandfather were among the assembled guests on the lawn, seated at the rear behind rows of Green-Jacketed members, conspicuous by their obvious lack of belonging.The one member of the Spieth family not in attendance is at the heart of the tale and fundamental in making the second youngest Masters champion the well-adjusted individual he is.Ellie Spieth is 14 years old, autistic and a profound source of inspiration to the family, who, not untypically when a child with special needs enters the piece, found their lives enriched in ways they could never have imagined.Spieth, who is engaged to his high-school sweetheart, is scheduled to play the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head, starting on Thursday, his sixth tournament in seven weeks. You would assume the sheer scale of this achievement might catch up with him at some point. Then again, there is little in the career of Spieth that follows convention.His win at the Masters took him to No 2 in the world rankings. Only Rory McIlroy stands between him and his goal of becoming the world’s best player. That sets up the summer nicely.--five jordan spieth facts you didn’t know about eth facts1.
