Jordan Spieth finished second in Junior PGA Championship in both 2008 and 2009, and was named the 'Rolex Junior Player of the Year' by the American Junior Golf Association in 2009. He won the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship two times, in 2009 and 2011, becoming the second player ever to win multiple Junior titles after Tiger Woods.

He became the first amateur exemption since 1995 to play in the PGA Tour's HP Byron Nelson Championship in 2010 where he not only made the cut, but finished the tournament T16th. He earned himself another exemption at the next year's tournament, in which he tied for 32nd.
