It pays to be the king of golf, and Jordan Spieth is currently wearing the crown. The 22-year-old kid from Dallas is enjoying the fame and fortune he accumulated over the past year where he won two majors, the FedEx cup, and won the hearts of America to the tune of $22,000,000 (and that’s just from his tourney winnings).
Seemingly unhappy with his $2M Preston Hollow mansion he bought 10 months ago, Spieth is on the move once again. He’s making the short 7-minute drive up Inwood to find himself in another Preston Hollow gated community after buying Hunter Mahan’s house.
From Dallas Morning News:
Now Spieth has reportedly purchased Mahan’s home, which was listed by Dallas real estate pro Erin Mathews of the Mathews-Nichols Group of Allie Beth Allman for $8.495 million.
Candy Evans, a real estate blogger, reports Spieth purchased it in December for $7.1 million.
The Santa Barbara-style home sits on more than an acre in the gated Creeks of Preston Hollow community.
Some of the amenties include:
• 3 living areas
• Underground 12-car garage
• Indoor basketball hoop
• Indoor golf simulator
• Full outdoor kitchen
And here is the beaut:
Talk about an absolute steal for only $7.1 mill. Whoever is negotiating for Spieth needs to sell a goddamn book on the art of negotiation. Hunter Mahan’s yearly winnings have been on the decline since 2012 and now Spieth is fleecing him for more than a $1,000,000 off the original asking price. You gotta feel for Hunter a little after only making a measly $1.6M last season.
The house is classy, but not in-your-face fancy. Just a nice little humble house for a humble guy who can afford to buy not one, but two multi-million dollar homes in less than 12 months. At the rate he’s going, he’ll be upgrading to the $16M Austin mansion that I’ve got my eye on by this time next year..
