Golf’s new superstar could be in need of a hair transplant - aged just 21

POSTED: 13 April 2015

Golf fans will have enjoyed the climax to the Master's golf tournament this weekend.

It is the first of the 'majors' and was won at a canter by a remarkable 21-year-old Texan called Jordan Spieth.

Spieth's achievement was remarkable: his 18-under winning total was the lowest score since another 21-year-old, Tiger Woods, also won his first major at the Masters way back in 1997.

You rarely see Spieth on the course without his trusty baseball cap and there could be a very good reason for that.

Because the new Masters champion is already showing fairly advanced signs of male pattern baldness.

Like the England soccer captain Wayne Rooney, Spieth's hair loss has come at a remarkably early age.

Crown Clinic's surgeon Asim Shahmalak prefers not to operate on patients until they are at least 25 - by this age, a pattern of hair loss can be established. 

Spieth would benefit from either a FUE (Follicular United Extraction) procedure favoured by Rooney or a FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) procedure favoured by Crown Clinic's client, the Embarrassing Bodies doctor Christian Jessen.
