Throughout his 20-year career, Chuck Grom has conducted stock market research and analysis for some of New York’s most prominent financial institutions, including Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan. When he isn’t working, Chuck Grom enjoys playing and watching golf.

American golfer Jordan Spieth earned a sense of redemption on July 23, when he won the 146th Open Championship and became just the second man to win three different major championships before turning 24 years old. The year prior, at Augusta, Spieth blew a five-stroke lead in the last nine holes, allowing England’s Danny Willett to wear the green jacket as The Masters champion. Spieth entered Sunday’s final round of The Open Championship with a three-stroke lead, but trailed by one after 13 holes.

Instead of crumbling under the pressure as he did a year ago at The Masters, Spieth shot an impressive five under par in the final five holes to secure the Claret Jug by a three-stroke victory over fellow American Matt Kuchar. The only major title Spieth hasn’t won is the PGA Championship, which takes place in August. Should Spieth win that tournament, he’ll become only the sixth player to win all four majors.
