Jordan Spieth chips in for birdie (GIF)

Jordan Spieth is looking to become the youngest Masters winner in history at Augusta on Sunday. He’s off to a good start.

Spieth put his tee shot in a bunker at the 4th hole and had the spectators and viewers at home thinking he needed to get up and down to save par and remain in a tie atop the leader board. He decided to hole it instead. The 20-year-old hit a beautiful shot from the sand and it dropped in for birdie.


No word yet on whether or not Spieth’s girlfriend Annie Verret is in attendance. We wouldn’t be surprised to see her get some TV time if Jordan makes history.

Jordan Spieth may be a 20-year-old professional golfer who is in position to win the first Masters he has ever appeared in, but his girlfriend is his better half. Spieth is dating the stunning miss Annie Verret, a student at Texas Tech University.

Verret is much more than just the pretty face behind one of the most promising young golfers in the world. According to FabWags.com, Verret has made the Dean’s List at Texas Tech and was on the President’s Honor Roll twice after compiling a 4.0 GPA in the business program at Texas Tech.

Between Spieth’s golf swing and Verret’s business savvy, we may be looking at the future of power couples in sports.

Jordan Spieth snubbed on handshake by Tom Rinaldi (Video)

Jordan-Spieth-snubbedJordan Spieth wowed the spectators at the British Open on Thursday by firing an opening-round 69. What’s so amazing about shooting 2-under? Muirfield is one of the toughest courses in the world, and Spieth is only 19 years old.

After the impressive round, Spieth sat down for a quick interview with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi. Unfortunately, he did not close out the intervew as strongly as he closed out his round. Spieth went in for a handshake at the end and Rinaldi wasn’t paying attention, which resulted in a horrible snubbing.

Typically the golfers stay where they are until the cameras stop rolling and shake hands with the reporter afterword. The youngster will learn that in time. Don’t be surprised if he cuts out handshakes altogether going forward.
