Spieth’s one weakness

Jordan Spieth appears to have it all. He's the world number one, a two-time major winner, and an all-round good guy. But there is one area where the 22-year-old is struggling – and his brother is more than happy to talk about it.

Spieth is most often seen donning an Under Armour cap which is no really surprise as he has sponsorship commitments and it's pretty standard for players to wear caps whenever on the course.

However, Spieth's fondness for caps is – if you believe the rumours – down to his receding hairline. Yes, the man who has everything probably won't have hair in the not too distant future.

Just in case

Spieth's brother Steven, who plays basketball at Brown University, doesn't have the same problem, and he's more than eager to share the area where he gets one over his younger brother.

In an interview with the New York Times, Steven said that he more than compensated for his brother's lake of hair.

“If he doesn't have any hair, I might as well have extra, right?” Steven said. “It's not really rebelling against anything, I think it's just fun messing with my mom a little bit.”

Spieth's hair has gotten plenty of airtime this year, with comedian and bald man Larry David telling Golf Digest that Spieth was going "wildly bald", while Matt Kuchar quipped after a comment from Spieth on his age (Kuchar is 36), that “I may be older, but we have similar hairlines.”

It's all fun and games, and Spieth is luckily able to see the lighter side of things.

"Yeah, that was pretty funny," he said. "Hey, nothing I can do about it."

If you're wondering what Spieth pre-early 20s hair loss looked liked, wonder no more…

The question we're pondering, is full Spieth follow in Wayne Rooney's footsteps and put a stop to the problem…

Just in case
