Spieth keeping his foot on the gas

World number one Jordan Spieth revealed that there is no reason why he can't repeat his incredible season in 2016.

Texan's back-to-back major wins and his Tour Championship title helped him secure the top ranking and his first FedEx Cup.

Spieth capped off his 2015 with a fourth place finish at the Hero World Challenge on Sunday, his final event for the year. But 2016 is already on his mind…

"You don't accept a hangover, you know?" the 22-year-old told usatoday.com. 

"There's no reason I should. It's not like it was my first season out and just broke out and did that. It wasn't just this season. We played solid golf for three years and really competed in 40 some odd tournaments I had a chance to win on the weekend. That's really cool.

"I think these last two weeks, the fact that I didn't win when I had a chance may actually be a good thing for me. I'm going to look at it positively that you can't settle down, you've got to work a little bit harder. 

"Everyone is obviously playing a high level of golf right now and they're going to carry that into next season. So if I want to stay at the top, I'm going to have to outwork them and that's going to be challenging."

Spieth also revealed that he won't be hiding his clubs away for the off-season, which he will spend at home with his family in Dallas.  

"When it's nice out, I'll go out and play and practice," quipped the two-time major winner.

"Probably do a lot of playing. This is when everyone's in town and we can have some fun games. It's a fun time of the year to be home for the holidays."

Spieth's next scheduled event is the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January.
