If you didn't know anything about 2015 Masters champion Jordan Spieth, we'd tell you these three things:
1. He's an exception talent and the best putter in the world,
2. He's remarkably polite and humble, then
3. He's a competitor of the highest order.
None of those things are new about the 21-year-old Texan, and we've got the evidence to prove it. Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News tweeted a picture Tuesday of a 'Thank you' note Spieth wrote while a junior at Jesuit High School to a family which provided him a scholarship to the school.

In the handwritten -- which is a big deal in the 21st century -- note, Spieth talks about working during high school to earn the gifted money. He then goes on to talk about his accomplishments, but in a way that seems like he almost assumed no one had ever heard of him. (He finished T-16 in the Byron Nelson Championship the next May.)
Then Spieth shares his ultimate goal: "My dream is to play professionally and win the Masters."
Well, he's all set at 21.
