JT. Spieth is a shadow of his former self and basically living on the tour as Just Another Tour Pro. He is one or two cuts above Fowler at this point for relevancy.
I agree that JT is the better golfer, by a lot, and will win more majors, but Spieth literally won the RBC Heritage like 3 weeks ago, and came in 2nd in the Byron Nelson last week. Also came in 2nd at Pebble this year. He is 8th in the Fedex Cup Rankings right now. He's most definitely not Just Another Tour Pro.

Spieth isn't close to his 2015-17 self but yea he's won recently and put together some strong finishes.

Weirdly, his numbers off the tee are pretty good right now but his putting isn't at all really. Sort of like he flipped from a few years ago.

It certainly feels like JT is on track for the better career going forward though.
 
That was a proper golf tournament. And man, the number of people who have won multiple majors in the past decade is not large:

Koepka (4)
McIlroy (3)
Spieth (3)
Mickelson (2)
DJ (2)
JT (2)
Morikawa (2)

That is a list of proper golfers, isn't it? (Bubba sneaks in here as well, just, if you extend the calendar by a month to include his first Masters win in 2012.)
