Spieth receives 'key to the city' in Dallas

RSS

Jordan Spieth didn’t even have a PGA Tour card at the start of this year. 

Now, he has the key to a city. 

Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings awarded the first-ever honorary key to the city to the 20-year-old phenom on Wednesday, according to the CBS local affiliate in Dallas.

“I’m very proud, obviously to be a Texan … more specially to represent the city of Dallas,” Spieth said at the council meeting. “It’s home for me, always has been and always will be.”

After beginning the year with no status on any major tour, Spieth won the John Deere Classic, represented the U.S. at the Presidents Cup, earned the PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year award and banked nearly $4 million. He was also GolfChannel.com's No. 9 Newsmaker of 2013.
