Spieth has now accrued $521,893 in four starts this year, surpassing the earnings of the 150th-ranked player on the 2012 season-long money list ($474,295). As a result, the 19-year-old is now eligible for an unlimited number of sponsor's exemptions as he tries to earn his card for the 2013-14 season via the non-member money list or non-member FedEx Cup points list.
The former Texas standout has made the most of his opportunities thus far this season. After a missed cut at Torrey Pines and a tie for 22nd at Pebble Beach, Spieth tied for second at the Puerto Rico Open while playing on a sponsor's exemption. That top-10 finish got him a spot in the field at Innisbrook, where he earned another top-10 finish that granted him an exemption into next week's Shell Houston Open.
