As an aspiring golfer, Jordan Spieth took nothing for granted.

Spieth was able to attend Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas on a scholarship. While some star athletes may feel that their athletic abilities entitle them to such scholarships, young Spieth was very appreciative of the opportunity given to him.

He was so appreciative, in fact, that he wrote a letter of thanks to the family that set up the fund, as seen in Tuesday's tweet from Barry Horn of The Dallas Morning News.

In the letter, Spieth expressed his gratitude and even revealed his lofty goals: The 16-year-old had his sights set on playing golf professionally and winning the Masters.

Spieth has since turned his dreams into reality, earning a coveted green jacket at the 2015 Masters. The golfer certainly has the Murphy family to thank for helping him reach his potential.
