5. Jordan & Annie Spieth Live in a $7.1 Million Home in Dallas

The 16,665-square-foot home includes a pool, basketball court, gym and golf simulator, according to the newspaper. The house is inside a gated community.

In April 2022, Spieth credited his wife’s advice for helping him win the RBC Heritage tournament, which was his first victory on the PGA Tour since the Texas Open in 2021. Spieth told reporters, according to the Golf Channel, that after missing a putt during the third round, “I was about as upset after the round yesterday as I’ve ever been in a golf tournament.”
He said, “Annie told me last night, ‘You need to take 5 seconds now’ – and she never comments on my golf –
you need to take 5 seconds, if you miss a putt, before you hit your tap-in. So, I thought about it today. There were a couple times I was just going to rake it, and I was like, no, I’ve got to take 5 seconds.” He said seeing his son after the third round helped change his mood.
“That turned a lot around for me last night was just hanging out with him and this morning. Even this morning, I was kicking myself. I thought about it all night. Just like, just how am I going to get that back? It just takes your mind off of things and puts it where it should be, which is in the moment of hanging out,” he said. “I really, really enjoyed that. Had a great time spending the mornings with him, and we got our dog here, too. It was a blast.”
