PALM HARBOR, Fla. – As if Jordan Spieth needed any extra motivation to win his second Masters, there is a regular reminder in his closet.

“I go in the closet to grab something and I see the jacket or I see the garment bag that says, ‘Masters Champion, 2015,’” Spieth said. “It's just like, ‘That's mine. Oh, shoot, I got to give that back. Oh, wait, let's try to get this back in our hands.’”

Spieth said he hasn’t taken the green jacket everywhere since winning last year’s Masters, but there haven’t been too many weeks without it.

“I would say the majority of the time,” he smiled when asked how often the green jacket, which he must return to the club next month, is with him.
